Upcoming Trainings:

Funerals & Rituals: A Culturally Considerate Perspective during COVID-19
October 22, 2020 – 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

This workshop is designed for professionals who are interested in exploring current perspectives and cultural considerations related to the changing rituals surrounding death during the COVID-19 pandemic. Social restrictions have altered the grief process and experience for many, leading to shifts and adaptions of cultural rituals, beliefs, values, and morals. Join us to learn and explore cultural traditions and the struggles that people have been presented with so that we can continue to support members of our community during these trying times.

Empathy for the Empaths: Applying Grief Principles from the Professional’s Perspective
February 25, 2021 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Many are drawn to work in the human service field based on the rewarding aspects of helping and serving those in our community. However, it is important to acknowledge and address the challenges and hurdles that we are presented with in order to maintain an optimal level of support. Self-care and building support systems play an important role in the grief-process as well as the sensitive work that we do. In this training, we will discuss the concepts of compassion fatigue, companioning, and basic grief principles as it applies to the working professionals so that we can increase our mindfulness and continue supporting those in need.

Resilience, Rebirth & Resourcefulness: Meaning Making in the Face of Adversity
April 22, 2021 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Throughout the past year, the COVID-19 pandemic has opened our eyes to the effects of death and non-death related loss. We understand that as time passes, grief often changes. This training will focus on helping professionals foster the concepts of rebirth, resilience and resourcefulness within the individuals, families and groups that we work with to promote growth and healing in the face of adversity.
