Because people react in different ways to loss, we design training to provide you with confidence and skills for the circumstances you come across.
Why Our Training Works
We don’t overburden you with psychological jargon, gut-wrenching examples or heart-tugging emotion.
We handle tough subjects in ways that are simple and effective. And we provide you with action-focused skills and practical tips on what to say and the best way to help out.
Benefits of Grief Solutions Training
There are many good reasons to prepare in advance in this critical area. But at the end of a long day, there are the only two reasons that matter the most: You and those you assist.
Our goal is to increase your confidence and skills for providing assistance to those who have lost someone close.
Wide Range of Topics
The type of assistance you provide will determine your training needs.
Military personnel need to know what to expect in families of the fallen; advice on what to say when providing casualty support; or tips on managing the cumulative personal and organizational stressors of losing a fellow service member.
Mental health professionals may want to review the many types of losses and their resultant grief reactions; a refresher on the needs of working through grief; or an update on the newest research in the death, dying and bereavement field.
