The aims of the bereavement counselling training are:

- To gain an overview of different models for working with bereavement
- To gain practical experience in working on issues involved in bereavement
This 25 hour programme will be run at Drake House on five Sundays in February and March 2018, from 10.30-4.30 with one hour for a lunch break (please bring your own lunch).
2018 Dates: Feb 18th, 25th. March 4th, 18th and 25th.
Participation would be limited to 20 people, in order to allow for small group and triad work. Participants need to be qualified counsellors or psychotherapists currently engaged in work with clients.
There will be some reading material distributed by email before each Module, to help prepare participants, and some suggestions about general reading material.
Each module will include a teaching element, small group work and a skills-practice or experiential element. On request, a supervision space, to think about past or present bereaved clients participants have worked with, or the bereaved practitioner, could also be included.
During some of the skills practice, participants will be provided with scenarios and work in triads and provide feedback to one another. Some sharing of personal experiences of loss is also an aspect of the course in order to give participants opportunities to hear others talk about their losses.
Participants are encouraged to keep a personal journal for their own personal use during the course.
Pointers to further resources, books, websites etc will be given as the course progresses.
