PENTHOS – Responding to Loss



Penthos was the spirit of grief and lamentation. He was one of the Algea or ‘sorrows’. His mother was Gaia (Earth), reflecting the inevitability of grief in people’s lives – grief is born of the earth, of being alive.

Issues of loss and grief feature strongly in the helping professions, even though their significance and impact are not always appreciated. This course explores the key role of grief in shaping human experience and argues the case for broadening our understanding of loss beyond death-related losses.
