We offer two different types of training:
Individual training courses on a specific aspect of bereavement, all of which are listed below. These are day long courses open to anyone who works with children who feel they would be of benefit to them. Please note that we request delegates have attended our 'Introduction to Childhood Bereavement' or other similar training before attending our other courses.
Bespoke training courses where we will write and deliver training to cover your specific need. If, once you have looked at our training courses you feel this would be the better option, please call us to discuss this further.
Please follow the links below for more detailed information on each course, or request a copy of our 2018/19 training programme by clicking the image on the left.

Why should I have training?
Approximately 2,500 children in Dorset will suffer a bereavement of someone close to them every year. Often children will not know who to turn to during this difficult time and can feel very isolated from their peers. Our training courses will help you to feel more confident talking to a bereaved child which will be incredibly valuable to the child and their family.
Between September 2017 - June 2018 we had 197 delegates through our training programmes with 65% of these rating our training as 'Excellent'. The remaining 35% rated our training as 'Very Good' and 'Good'.
