A Course on Helping logo


The goal of the course is to prepare you to respond effectively to someone experiencing emotional turmoil in stressful circumstances.

The course logo seen above is composed of five images. Each icon is a separate module in the course, arranged in a sequence, beginning with Emotion and ending with Transformation.

the Emotion icon Emotion A red whirlpool illustrating the power of emotions. In this module, you will learn about the importance of emotions and their significance in helping
the Threshold icon Threshold A blue spiral of sadness illustrating the first passage for someone experiencing heartache.
the Stabilize icon Stabilize Blue rests on white in a stable image illustrating the second passage for those in heartache.
the Mobilize icon Mobilize In this icon, the color changes to green for action and the image returns to motion in this third passage.
the Transform icon Transform A gold sun in a stable image illustrating the final passage for those who have lived through grief.

In each module, you will learn important principles and skills that will contribute to your effectiveness as a caring and supportive person. You will also learn about responding appropriately during each of the four passages of grief management.
