Basic Bereavement Skills Training

Our Basic Bereavement Skills training is available to a wide range of groups and individuals working with the bereaved in general settings such as health and social care, housing support, adult care, volunteer bereavement workers, faith and community groups. We have provided training to over 300 people in the last year.

The three hour session introduces some of the basic theories about the grieving process and develops skills and awareness in a small group through exercises and discussion.

At the end of the session participants should:

  • Have a greater awareness and understanding of the grieving process.
  • Feel more confident in addressing bereavement issues with the people they work with.
  • Feel more confident in recognising what is part of the ‘normal’ grieving process and recognising when people need more specialised support.
