Personal Grief and Loss Awareness Activity
As a result of experiences with loss and grief, each of us develops our own unique style of dealing with these issues. Understanding your attitudes, values, assumptions, beliefs, reactions, and unfinished business (if any) is an important task of self-awareness. The goal of this assignment is to facilitate your reflection about how these issues present themselves and relate to your personal coping style as well as your interactions with others coping with loss and grief.
Part 1 – Loss Timeline: Construct a time line which represents the loss events in your life, including non-death related losses such as loss of dreams, loss of job, loss of home, etc. You can begin by making a list of items, starting with your earliest memory and working through to the current day. Some people prefer a line with bullet points along the way, while others will use a chart. You can decide the way you’d like to represent your time line – be as creative as you would like!
Part 2 – Personal Death Awareness: Complete the Personal Reflection handout included as an attachment.
Part 3 – Reflection: Using the information you’ve identified in your loss history and the Personal Reflection handout, write a reflection summary on the impact of these events upon the following:
• Your interest in issues of grief and loss as well as personal goals for this course;
• Your personal style of dealing with loss i.e. how has your upbringing, culture, religion, ethnicity influenced your coping style And how do you cope with issues of death and non-death loss in your life?
• Your comfort levels in dealing with different issues of grief, and different kinds of loss with others i.e. are there specific kinds of losses that you feel will be particularly challenging to work with?; do you have experience with specific groups of people or specific illness or events that have proven to be difficult in the past?; do you have any value-oriented or ethical conflicts with certain issues, people, events?
• Your thoughts on stages of grief and types of losses individuals and their families may experience.

We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g. Turnitin.com), we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.
We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for turnitin.com itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from turnitin.com and send us the report.
Yes. You can have a free revision during 7 days after you’ve approved the paper. To apply for a free revision, please press the revision request button on your personal order page. You can also apply for another writer to make a revision of your paper, but in such a case, we can ask you for an additional 12 hours, as we might need some time to find another writer to work on your order.
After the 7-day period, free revisions become unavailable, and we will be able to propose only the paid option of a minor or major revision of your paper. These options are mentioned on your personal order page.
