Basic Loss & Grief Support Training

Grief can feel like being lost in a maze of conflicting emotions. A helping hand and a listening ear can be beneficial in supporting someone to process their grief. This introductory course equips participants with the skills required to effectively support someone who is grieving.

Topics covered:

  • What is Loss & Grief?

  • Explore reactions to loss and the grief process

  • What to say and how to care for someone who is grieving

  • The role of a grief supporter

​NALAG Grief Support Volunteers are required to complete this course prior to providing Client Support.

This course can be delivered via Weekend Mode (two full days) and Evening Mode (four evening sessions)
