    Center For Loss: Comprehensive Bereavement Skills Training

    https://www.centerforloss.com/trainings/

    This course is a suggested foundational course for all other Center for Loss courses. However, we realize that for certain caregivers, taking just one or two of our specialty courses (such as Helping Children and Adolescents Cope with Grief) without first completing Comprehensive Bereavement Skills Training may make the most sense. Please e-mail or call us if you would like to discuss your unique needs.

    Whether you are new to the experience of caring for those in grief or are a veteran bereavement caregiver, we invite you to participate in this popular seminar.

    Comprehensive Bereavement Skills Training explores a wide range of topics related to bereavement caregiving, including:

    • Exploring North America’s modern understanding of grief and loss
    • Introduction to the tenets of “companioning” versus treating
    • Understanding attachment and love influences on grief
    • Misconceptions surrounding grief and loss
    • Unique influences on grief: the whys of the journey
    • Exploring the six central needs of mourning and the companioning helping role
    • Encouraging self-compassion in mourners
    • Application of content to support groups
    • Exploring reconciliation versus resolution
    • Acknowledging the transformative nature of grief.

    Dr. Wolfelt’s bereavement caregiving philosophy is based on what he has termed “companioning”. All of the practical topics covered in this course will be viewed through the companioning lens, and the companioning tenets will be introduced and explored.

    Graduates of this comprehensive seminar will return home with a multitude of newly refined skills and abilities. This is a very popular seminar, so early application is a must!

    Participants will receive a copy of Companioning the Bereaved: A Soulful Guide for Caregivers.

    • 11/13/2018

    This session was originally presented at NHPCO’s 2013 Virtual Conference 'Loss, Grief and Bereavement: Helping Patients, Families and Communities.' With the trend to increase hospice access to underserved communities, comes the importance of the hospice clinician’s understanding of the unique grief needs of individuals from a variety of cultural and ethnic backgrounds. Since we look at life through our own cultural lens and this lens has the potential to distort what we observe, we must first develop awareness of our own multi-cultural heritage and values related to grief. Next is awareness of how these values play a part in the relationship with the mourner. This session will then proceed to outline key characteristics of a culturally-competent clinician, including knowledge of death and mourning practices, verbal and non-verbal communication cultural differences, and finally, culturally- sensitive bereavement interventions.

    • 11/13/2018

    This session was originally presented at NHPCO’s 2013 Virtual Conference ‘Loss, Grief and Bereavement, helping patients, families and communities’. Among combat Veterans memories of friends killed in battle often remain vivid and laced with emotion even after the passage of decades. Some who survive carry a sense of guilt which can impact not only the way they live but how they die as they approach the end of life. Some of the driving factors of survivor guilt are explored and ways of supporting these Veterans toward healing are explored.

The content of this seminar is appropriate both for novices and for experienced practitioners looking to update their counseling skills.

    Topics we will concentrate on include:

    • Development of the counseling relationship
    • Characteristics distinguishing effective from ineffective counselors
    • Counseling techniques and practice

    Creating Meaningful Funeral Ceremonies

    $895.00

    As Dr. Wolfelt frequently states, “When words are inadequate, have a ceremony.” This seminar will help participants enhance their understanding of the WHY of meaningful funerals. For a multitude of reasons, which we will explore in this training, many people do not understand the value of various elements of funerals (viewing, music, reading eulogy/remembrance, symbols, actions, gathering). The result is that many families are “at risk” for eliminating or subverting these elements.

    This information-filled training will define these elements, review the functional value they bring to a meaningful funeral, and interface them with Dr. Wolfelt’s WHY We Have Had Funerals Since the Beginning of Time pyramid. You will be taught to theme everything you do with information, education, and honoring the family’s unique needs.

    Due to many requests for this training, we are opening the registration to any caregivers interested in enhancing their understanding of creating meaningful funerals.

    Topics include:

    • Learn how to help families make transformations and “decisions that are good for them”
    • Arrange meaningful funerals as a “facilitator” not a “functionary”
    • How to convey value during every step of the planning process
    • Understand that ritual means “to fit together”
    • Interface the Wolfelt WHY pyramid with the elements of ceremony
      How to care for yourself as you create meaningful funerals

    Participants will receive a copy of Creating Meaningful Funeral Experiences: A Guide for Caregivers and A Tale of Two Funerals: The Throw Rug and the Tapestry.

    Exploring the Spiritual Dimensions of Death, Grief, and Mourning Training

    $895.00

    Bereavement naturally results in the “dark night of the soul,” writes Dr. Wolfelt. A central need of those in grief is to rejuvenate the spirit, to discover a reason to get one’s feet out of bed in the morning. Dr. Wolfelt will explore

    • Definitions of spirituality and faith
    • Themes of spiritual importance to the bereaved

    Support Group Facilitator Training

    $895.00

    Enthusiasm for bereavement support group counseling has burgeoned in recent years.

This seminar helps fill this gap.

    Topics covered will include:

    Support group leadership skills

    Barriers to effectiveness in support group counseling

    Detailed guidelines for operational practices (such as size of group, length, and frequency of sessions)

    Development of ground rules

    Distinguishing open-ended from closed-ended groups

    Elements of pre-screening group members

    Intervening with disruptive group members

    Publicizing your group

    Participants will receive a copy of Understanding Your Grief, The Understanding Your Grief Journal, and The Understanding Your Grief Support Group Guide.

    PTSD: Companioning the Traumatized Griever

    $895

    As our cultural and medical awareness of post-traumatic stress have grown, we as a society and as caregivers have begun to realize the sheer magnitude of the issue. It’s now thought that about eight percent of us are experiencing the condition called PTSD at any given time.

    In this training, Dr. Wolfelt will explore PTSD not as a “disorder” but instead as a component of normal, though complicated, grief. He will explain his belief that the term “traumatic grief” captures better the totality of people’s experience following traumatic loss. The symptoms of grief, normal or traumatic, are care-eliciting symptoms—not signs of illness but rather symptoms of an injury that needs careful and compassionate tending. What’s more, the missing piece in the puzzle that is traumatic grief is mourning, or the expression of grief.

    Topics we will cover include:

    • Traumatic versus normal grief symptoms
    • Traumatic grief as a form of complicated grief
    • Medical model therapies as treatment
    • Mourning as “treatment”
    • Catch-up mourning for traumatic grief

    Participants will receive a copy of Reframing PTSD as Traumatic Grief: How Caregivers Can Companion Traumatized Grievers Through Catch-Up Mourning.

    Exploring the Shadow of the Ghosts of Grief

    $895.00

    This seminar will help participants learn more about Dr. Wolfelt’s concept of the “shadow of the ghosts” of grief. The person living in the shadow of the ghosts of grief has symptoms that suggest the pain of grief has been inhibited, suppressed, converted, or denied. Come learn about:

    • The concept of “carried grief”
    • Sociocultural contributions to “carried grief”
    • A five-phase wounding process
    • Categories of “complicated mourning”
    • Family system influences: trans-generational passing town
    • The process of “catch-up” mourning

    Participants will receive a copy of Living in the Shadow of the Ghosts of Grief.
