Having your community group or agency educated about grief is like civil defence training, being prepared beforehand can reduce damage and create better outcomes when a situation arises.
Improving your understanding of grief will help your interactions with clients, work colleagues, staff, friends or family who are grieving. It will help you overcome any awkwardness around what to say, what not to say and how to be comfortable with other people’s grief.
Education and training on loss and grief is a wise choice for those working at community level.
Sessions are tailored to the specific needs of your community group or agency

- Recognising grief; in yourself and others
- Supporting someone in grief What’s helpful and unhelpful?
- Caring for yourself and others when grieving
- Current ways of thinking about grief
