CEU Certified! (13 and 7.5 credit options)

Upcoming dates: August 15th, 22nd and 23rd 2020

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.”

Due to COVID-19 precautions, this training will be a hybrid of Zoom and in-person (socially-distanced on our large North Valley campus) experiences.
