SOSC 222 - GRIEF, CRISIS, AND HOPE
This course looks at both the personal and societal levels of grief and crisis. Personal grief arises as individuals face life transitions (leaving home, graduating, job difficulties, divorce, lost physical abilities, aging) as well as the loss of a loved one. The societal level of grieving can be studied in response to public or political events (Littleton, the Oklahoma bombing, assassinations, or the death of public figures such as JFK Jr., John Lennon, or Princess Diana). In this course we will study the impact of grief on individuals, institutions (such as the school and workplace) and society as well as "mass media mourning," the creation of the mounting societal events with which individuals have no direct connection.
