  • Gain an understanding of the theories of loss and grieving in relation to children and young people.
  • Develop knowledge of practical strategies and gain greater confidence in supporting bereaved children and young people.

We encourage prospective participants to consider their own experience of loss and how it might affect them during training. Generally speaking, our training is not usually suited to anyone who has suffered a recent, significant personal loss or bereavement.
