1 WURZWEILER SCHOOL OF SOCIAL WORK YESHIVA UNIVERSITY COPING WITH LOSS SWK 6702 FALL 2011 ** ADDITIONAL READINGS WILL BE ASSIGNED BY YOUR INSTRUCTOR COURSE DESCRIPTION Coping with Loss is an elective for students in either their foundation or advanced year. Loss is a pervasive phenomenon throughout the life cycle. The course is designed to explore aspects of social work practice with clients experiencing loss and grief in a variety of situations. The course builds on psychosocial theories of human development as well as the work of internationally recognized experts in grief and bereavement. Since society generally associates grief with death, grief that accompanies life events such as separation from home (child welfare), divorce, immigration, retirement, homelessness or chronic illness, is frequently not addressed by clients or professionals. As with all human processes, the grieving processes are intertwined with each individual's place in their life span, their strengths, vulnerabilities, cultural orientations, values and resources. Knowledge and skills concerning loss, grief and bereavement have been evolving in the helping professions rapidly in the last 30 years. Social work has contributed considerably to this evolution. The focus of this course is to provide a theoretical base for understanding and addressing the psychosocial aspects of loss, death and bereavement. The use of contemporary knowledge for strengthening the coping skills of grieving individuals, families or groups is emphasized. Areas of study include skills of assessment and treatment which are explored using films and personal and case materials. Strategies and interventions in working with a culturally diverse array of vulnerable populations confronting loss, for whom services and programs need to be planned, are highlighted. The ethical dilemmas and social policy ofadisenfranchised associated with abortion, AIDS, suicide and physician-assisted suicide, are also explored. The losses of soldiers, veterans, their families and communities involved in the war in Iraq and Afghanistan will also be reviewed using evolving literature and guest speakers. LEARNING OBJECTIVES Upon completion of this course, students will demonstrate: 1. A beginning knowledge of the major theories, frameworks and models of grief process used in social work practice; 1

2 2. The ability to identify potential loss events occurring through the life cycle, including nondeath situations; 3. An increased understanding of the potential physical and psychosocial consequences of loss; 4. An increased awareness of the impact of individual difference, diversity and gender in relation to dying, loss and grief 5. An increased awareness of their own personal losses and a willingness to explore the impact of these losses on their ability to help clients coping with similar losses and fears. 6. A beginning ability to intervene in situations impacting psychosocial functioning which involve past, current, or impending loss. 7. Increased knowledge of resources (supportive and educational) available to individuals and families confronting or coping with loss events; 8. The ability to bridge knowledge about loss with all other social work knowledge, including research, policy and methods of practice. 9. Professional awareness of the responsibilities and responses to ethical dilemmas confronted when helping people cope with loss. 10. Familiarity with inequities in access to essential health, mental health and bereavement services. 11. Understanding of value conflicts and cultural differences which often accompany end if life decisions. PLAGIARISM Students should remember that the School will not condone plagiarism in any form and will sanction acts of plagiarism. A student who presents someone else's work as his or her own work is stealing from the authors or persons who did the original thinking and writing. Plagiarism occurs when a student directly copies another's work without citation; when a student paraphrases major aspects of another's work without citation; and when a student combines the work of different authors into a new statement without reference to those authors. It is also plagiarism to use the ideas and/or work of another student and present them as your own. It is not plagiarism to formulate your own presentation of an idea or concept as a reaction to someone else's work; however, the work to which you are reacting should be discussed and appropriately cited. Any student who can be shown to have plagiarized any part of any assignment in this course will automatically FAIL the course and will be referred to the Associate Dean for disciplinary action that may include expulsion. HIPAA ALERT In line with the new HIPAA regulations concerning protected health information, it is important that you understand that any case information you present from your work, will need to be de-identified. What this means is that any information that would allow another to identify the person needs to be changed or eliminated. This includes obvious things like names and birth dates but may also contain 2

3 other information that is so unique to the person that it will allow for identification, including diagnosis, race/ethnicity, or gender. If diagnosis, race/ethnicity, or gender is directly related to the case presentation it can be included if it will not allow for identification. CONFIDENTIALITY Given the nature of classroom discussion and the presentation of case materials and at times personal revelation in class, students are reminded that the same commitment to confidentiality with clients extends to classmates. What is shared in class stays in class. STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES Students with disabilities who are enrolled in this course and who will be requesting documented disability-related accommodations are asked to make an appointment with the Office of Disability Services, Rochelle Kohn, Beren Campus, , Abby Kelsen, Wilf Campus, , during the first week of class. After approval for accommodations is granted, please submit your accommodations letter to Disability Services Office immediately.

ASSIGNMENTS Assignment I (due 5th class session.) The student is asked to consider a situation involving a personal loss or a client's loss through death or termination (e.g. breakup of a relationship, loss of employment, or immigration). Identify and discuss the major emotional components of this loss. What factors influenced the reactions of the grieving individual/family? Identify the influences of diversity and culture on the experience. Explain and explore the grief process as it unfolded. What major theories of loss help to explain the experience and the emotional components of the loss? This paper is to be written in APA format using relevant texts and journal articles. It is expected that the theoretical frameworks in the Rando readings as well as the Webb and Worden readings will frame the discussion. At least three sources are to be used in the preparation of this paper. Addresses course objectives 1, 2, 4, 5 7. Assignment II In this final paper, students are asked to develop a programmatic social work intervention, which will 4

5 help clients cope with loss. Using case material, or students' personal experiences, as appropriate, a particular category of loss will be explored, i.e. bereavement of widows, parents who have lost children, survivors of violence or natural disasters, loss through a specific illness or disability, retirement or divorce. How normally is this loss experienced? Are there cultural, gender or diversity influences? What is the professional caregiver role in this situation? What knowledge is needed to design appropriate, culturally sensitive interventions? What theories influence the intervention strategies? What modality of support would you choose for this intervention? Individual, family or group work? Give reasons for your choice. What supports would you look for in the life space of the grieving individual? This is a research paper and is to be written using APA format. At least five sources are to be cited for this paper. Addresses course objectives 1-9. GRADING CRITERIA There will be two written assignments during the semester. Classroom attendance and participation will be factored into the overall grade.
