About this event

This training workshop will look at how to support children, young people and their families experiencing bereavement using a solution-focused approach. It is suitable for those who work directly with children, young people and families, and who are willing to have supportive conversations around bereavement needs. 

Key learning:

  • Understanding the solution-focused principles and techniques involved in providing support.
  • Applying the principles and techniques within a framework of healthy grieving.
  • Describing a variety of models of grief.
  • Understanding the physical, emotional and cognitive impact of grief.
  • Beginning to practice the techniques with other participants drawing upon their own personal or professional experiences.

*While there is an expectation that you share aspects of your personal and/or professional grief experiences, it is left to your discretion as to how much you wish to share.
