Although it is an emotional time for children and young people who have been bereaved, it can also be a difficult experience for those who are supporting them in schools and other settings. We have counsellors based in the Mosaic office who are here to answer your queries and offer advice and support when you need it. As our referrals come from schools, we advise getting in touch with our counsellors to ensure that referrals are being made at an appropriate time.
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.

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 2018 - June 2019 we had 300 delegates through our training programmes with 75% of these rating our training as 'Excellent'. The remaining 25% rated our training as 'Very Good' and 'Good'.
