Healing and Making Peace 2019-2020
Mrs. Linda Baldacchino
This course is designed to explore the many different types of loss in human life, the process of grief, and the journey toward healing and acceptance. Emphasis will be placed on the bereavement process, the Paschal Mystery, and one of the predominant themes of the Scriptures: transformation through faith, hope, and love. There will also be a spirit of personal reflection and exploration.
Topics include: the nature of loss, the stages of grief with special attention to the Kubler-Ross Model, the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual symptoms of grief, the healthy and unhealthy methods of coping, the Sacraments of Healing: Reconciliation and Anointing the Sick, forgiveness, the Stations of the Cross, and Peacemaking skills and strategies for personal relationships.
