Like death and taxes, we all experience loss throughout our lives. As we age, our losses increase, and the major price we pay as survivors is having to deal with the losses all around us.

In our society, it’s easy to learn how to accumulate, and there are countless educational institutions and commercial organizations to help us improve our accumulation skills. But how do we learn to let go? Where are we taught the skills to deal effectively with loss?

Imagery is an excellent interventional tool in helping people move through loss and transformation. For this home study course, we have selected some of the best information from our prior workshops on guided imagery and loss.

Section I provides an overview of the nature of loss, and how the imagery skills you’ve learned so far can be helpful.

In Section II, you’ll have an opportunity to experience some of the ways we respond to loss through an imagery practicum in which participants are exposed to a gradual, simulated relinquishment of personal attachments.

This exercise is designed to evoke strong emotions, and if you are uncomfortable about participating, we suggest that you listen only as an observer rather than as a participant.

Section III discusses the importance of belief systems in patients with catastrophic illness, and how imagery is used to help people adopt more positive beliefs and attitudes.

Section IV explores the uses of Interactive Guided Imagery℠ in hospice work with dying patients and their caregivers, emphasizing imagery techniques found to be effective in controlling pain, stress, and anticipatory nausea and vomiting, as well as techniques that caregivers can benefit from using.

In Section V, you will experience a brief imagery exercise designed to help identify sources of support and other resources that were helpful during prior loss experiences.

Section VI explores loss and the transformational process, and how imagery techniques can be used to help people move through the predictable stages of grieving following loss.
