Event hosted by: Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association

Dates: April 14, 21, 28, May 5 and 12, 2021    9am-4pm

This training is suitable for: Any professional or volunteer who is in a position to influence the  support received by a grieving child. This includes front-line workers  and volunteers such as medical professionals, educators, clergy, social  workers, administrators, residential workers, counsellors, funeral  service providers and hospice volunteers.

Overview: Grief is a confusing and isolating experience for any person, old or  young. Children’s grief, however, differs considerably from adult  grief, resulting in the needs of grieving children often being  overlooked or misunderstood. This can have a profound impact on the social and emotional development of a child. Caregivers, including the  most skilled professionals, often feel helpless when supporting children through the death of someone close to them.

The children’s grief and bereavement certificate program explores the roots of our  cultural discomfort with the topic of children and death and exposes  common myths and misconceptions.  This certificate program aims to equip you with skills to provide support to children, youth and families grieving  the dying or death of someone they care about.  Adults cannot change the  reality of a death occurring in a child’s life, but with the right  tools they can play a powerful role in shaping the story of the child’s grief experience and therefore help the child thrive in life.

The individual webinars may be taken separate from the certificate program as stand-alone trainings; however, all five webinars must be completed to obtain the certificate.
