About the Course:

Grief education for children and adults in the community as well as professional trainings serve to increase outreach and advocacy for bereavement organizations. Community education reaches potential volunteers and donors, but most importantly supports a broader vision of “a world in which it is okay to grieve.” Grief is a normal reaction to loss, but many times our culture is not knowledgeable or accepting of the grief process. An easy interactive activity for children teaches about grief and support while trainings for adults can be offered in a variety of settings and to a wide range of people.

This course is based on the recorded webinar, A World in Which It’s Okay to Grieve: Advocacy and Outreach Through Grief Education created by Elizabeth Carson and Lane Pease, MS, NCC in 2015.
