This training is suitable for: Front-line workers and volunteers, medical professionals, educators, clergy, social workers, administrators, residential workers, counsellors, funeral service providers and hospice volunteers. Any professional who is in a position to support/influence a grieving child or youth.
The emphasis in this workshop will be on supporting participants who already have a theoretical foundation in children's grief and bereavement to build their toolkit and confidence in creatively engaging with children and youth who are grieving a death. Many easy to use (and modify) creative techniques in working with grieving children and youth will be shared, and participants will have the opportunity to engage in safe, experiential activities to better understand the process of using creative approaches. This is Learning Module 5 of the 2019 Certificate Program in Children's Grief and Bereavement. This module may be taken separately from the certificate program as a stand-alone workshop.
