In the course of our lives, it is inevitable that we will encounter traumatic death and loss both personally and professionally, yet we often feel ill-prepared to provide effective care throughout the grieving process.

This course will cover key grief and loss concepts relating to trauma and traumatic death.

Participants will increase their knowledge of how trauma impacts the grieving process and will gain skills for evaluating and supporting persons who have experienced traumatic death and loss.

This course is designed for anyone who works with people who experience grief and loss following a traumatic event.
