Basic Bereavement Skills

Our in-house Basic Bereavement Skills training is available online, or in-person, to teams of staff and volunteers (up to 15-20 people maximum)

The training would be most suitable for people who:

  • Work with bereaved people in general settings such as: health and social care, housing support, law firms,  adult care, volunteer bereavement workers, faith and community groups
  • Have had little or no formal training in bereavement

What will the training cover?

This three hour facilitated 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.
