Certified Grief Specialist
Affordable Excellence in Online Training
Are you one of those special people who has come far enough in their own journey with grief that you're ready to become a companion and guide for those who are just starting out?
Many people are surprised to discover that most of the grief and trauma support in North America is actually done by practitioners rather than psychologists, and one of their primary qualifications is often that they've experienced these things firsthand. In fact, psychologists and clergy often seek out education programs like this one precisely because they usually receive very minimal training in grief as part of their normal course of study.
The research staff at The Grief & Trauma Resource Center has compiled the most current research, from a variety of disciplines, in order to design our Grief Specialist Certification Program.
Appropriate for those whose main focus is on working with clients individually, this 8 week course is based on decades of real world experience, and provides students with access to 40 hours of training video, three required readings, a downloadable workbook, and direct communication with the course instructor.
