2-Day Online Grief and Loss Master Class


This 2-day course on grief and bereavement aims to offer knowledge and strategies to equip participants to effectively support grieving people within the scope of their role and/or professional practice. The course has an experiential learning approach within which participants reflect on their own grief and bereavement experiences and examine how these impacts their work with others. Training methods utilise a variety of learning interventions to ensure this professional development opportunity is stimulating, engaging and memorable.
