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.
This workshop will explore the concept that when awareness is balanced between self and other, compassion has a dual pathway, where our care extends both to ourselves and to those in our care. In addition to the use of compassion in clinical work, mindfulness practices that can be used with children, adolescents, and families will be explored, along with the clinician's own mindful practice. Participants will gain essential skills and strategies to develop mindfulness practices that can be incorporated into clinical work with those who are grieving a death.
This is Learning Module 4 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.
