This course is intended to better understand LIFE, particularly as it is affected by serious loss — that is, loss related to life-threatening illness, loss related to disability, and the ultimate loss caused by death. It is the intent of the professor that the course provide a solid theoretical and practical knowledge base about the topic of serious loss. Second, and more importantly, this course will provide an opportunity for hearing and deaf people to discuss issues of loss as they are related to our professional responsibilities. Topics of loss and thanatology are multidisciplinary; therefore, the course will be designed for professionals from a variety of fields, including education, counseling, social work, psychology, audiology, and administration.
