This training is suitable for: Front-line workers and volunteers, mental health professionals, medical professionals, educators, clergy, social workers, administrators, residential workers, counsellors, funeral service providers and hospice volunteers.
This workshop will focus on supporting children and youth after a death has happened in their lives, regardless of whether the death was a recent event or occurred years ago. Participants will learn how to identify grief support strategies that can be used with children and youth in a wide variety of settings. Participants will leave with innovative and practical tips for helping children and youth understand the concept of death, and for supporting their grief process. The role of cultural humility in grief work and what not to say to a bereaved child or youth will be covered. This is Learning Module 2 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.
