Basic Bereavement Skills Training

In partnership with Leeds City Council, we offer Basic Bereavement skills sessions for free to Leeds City Council staff, voluntary and community groups in Leeds. Due to COVID-19, our face to face training course dates had to be postponed, however, we are delivering some upcoming training sessions via Zoom.

Course overview

This three hour facilitated session introduces you to some of the basic theories about the grieving process and coming to terms with loss. It provides an opportunity for you to explore these ideas and develop your skills and awareness in a small group. The course includes:

  • An introduction to bereavement and loss
  • An overview of some grief models and theories
  • Listening skills and losses exercise
  • Signposting to further support
