Death and Bereavement Across Cultures
As counselors and social workers, we are ethically required to have knowledge of an individual's physical, social, educational, and spiritual existence. The expressions of grief and the needs that emerge vary widely from one person to another and are subject to past experiences, cultural expectations, personal beliefs, and relationships. An individual's identity comes from a sense of personal uniqueness, solidarity with group ideals, continuity with the past, present, and future, and from the culture by which an individual is raised or adopted. This workshop will explore death and bereavement rituals and beliefs of major world religions, explain their psychological and historical context, show how customs change over time, and discuss what implications may be for the future. When the workshop concludes, participants should have a sense of the richness of mourning traditions around the world.
