About the Course:

A strong online presence has become a crucial component of outreach and community presence for many grief centers, hospices, and counseling centers. This session will assist practitioners in understanding how to use a website, blog, and various social media platforms to expand their grief and mental health practice. Led by two mental health practitioners with expertise in online grief support and marketing, this session will review the benefits of an online presence for mental health practitioners, how an online presence can improve community access to grief and bereavement services, and give practical advice on building an online presence from the ground up. The session will share best practices in online community-building and outreach. Grief and mental health practitioners will leave with concrete tools for assessing, establishing or improving their online presence.

This course is based on the recorded webinar, Growing Your Reach Online: Using the Internet to Expand Your Grief Practice created by Litsa Williams MA, LCSW-C and Eleanor Haley MS in 0.
