“Not knowing what to say” is the most common statement when it comes to supporting children and young people, our courses aim to tackle this with a balance of theory and practical, creative ways to provide them with support through this emotional time.
We offer two different types of training;
Individual training courses on a specific aspect of bereavement, all of which are listed in this booklet, these are day long courses open to anyone who work with children who feel they would be of benefit to them.
Alternatively, if your workplace has a specific need we are able to offer a bespoke service, where we will write and deliver the training to cover that specific need. If once you have looked at our training day courses you feel this would be the better option, please let us know and we can discuss this further.
WHY SHOULD I HAVE TRAINING?
In 2016, we reached over 450 people through our training programme and 80% of delegates rated our training as ‘Excellent’ and a valuable educational experience. The remaining 20% rated it as ‘Very Good’ or ‘Good’.
In Dorset, there are approximately 2500 children who will suffer the death of someone close to them every year. Often, they will not know who to turn to during this difficult emotional time, can feel isolated from their peers and ‘different’. This training will help you have more confidence in talking to the bereaved child which will be incredibly valuable to the child and their family.
