Grief Support Group Facilitator Training (In-Person)

Volunteers bring vital energy, talent and heart to our support groups, and we’re looking for more individuals to round out our team. If you’ve ever considered lending your compassion and time to the grieving community, please consider learning how to become a support group facilitator at our upcoming training.

Facilitator Training (for all program brands: Grief’s Journey, HEALing Embrace, and Ted E. Bear Hollow) is open to the public, and although a fair percentage of our volunteers are mental health professionals, school personnel, and other non-profit providers, we believe the best volunteers have open hearts and come from ALL walks of life.

Training participants can expect to gain a deeper understanding of key issues surrounding loss and grief (broadly defined), adult bereavement, childhood bereavement, individual and family coping, and resilience. Our goal is to prepare professionals and volunteers to provide more competent, compassionate, and effective support for individuals and families, whether they encounter the individuals and families through our programs or in their professional and personal lives.

A 20-hour comprehensive training that prepares adults (ages 18+) to lead grief support groups, this training includes several modules (from developmental grief responses to diversity and inclusion) and a curriculum manual that can be used personally or professionally once training has been successfully completed. 20 CEUs are awarded.
