CEU Certified! (13 and 7.5 credit options)
Upcoming dates: TBD August 2021
This extensive training was created for the mighty Children’s Grief Center Volunteer Bereavement Facilitators, but is also available to the public and is accredited by the National Association of Social Workers (NASW). The training is offered every year in January and August. With supervision and support, compassionate listeners from all walks of life serve as bereavement facilitators. Volunteer Support Group Facilitators are the backbone of our program. As one volunteer wrote, “This is the most rewarding thing I do.”
