IHF and RCSI are now inviting applications for their part-time postgraduate programmes run over two years. Starting in September 2021.
MSc Loss & Bereavement and MSc Loss & Bereavement (Clinical Practice)
These Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland (RCSI) postgraduate programmes, in association with Irish Hospice Foundation (IHF), are designed to impact on health, social and community systems and ultimately to enhance quality of life. They are rooted in contemporary bereavement scientific research as well as being designed against a policy and professional regulation backdrop.
The clinical practice pathway is for those working therapeutically with bereaved people. The second pathway is a general education route for participants who work in other areas of bereavement care including education, management, policy and support.
For MSc Loss & Bereavement, applications are invited from representatives of a wide range of professional disciplines who wish to develop a deeper understanding of loss and grief at individual and societal level or whose work/volunteering roles involve the organisation of bereavement support in community, health or other areas of general bereavement care.
MSc Loss & Bereavement (Clinical Practice), applications are invited from mental health professionals such as counsellors, psychotherapists, psychologists, social worker bereavement coordinators and others who design and implement clinical bereavement interventions as part of their practice.
