Counseling Skills Fundamentals

The Handbook for Companioning the Mourner: Eleven Essential Principles

The Handbook for Companioning the Mourner: Eleven Essential Principles

This inspiring handbook explores Dr. Wolfelt’s “companioning” model of grief care and contrasts it with the traditional “treatment” model. Concise and engaging, this is a primer designed to spread the companioning philosophy among everyone who walks alongside mourners—counselors, hospice caregivers, funeral home staff, friends and family members.

Suggested Prerequisite: Comprehensive Bereavement Skills Training

This seminar evolved out of a need expressed by people working with the bereaved. Many have never had the opportunity to participate in a comprehensive yet practical counseling skills training program. We think this kind of training is a must for those working to “companion” people in their unique life and death journeys. The content of this seminar is appropriate both for novices and for experienced practitioners looking to update their counseling skills. Topics we will concentrate on include:

  • Development of the counseling relationship
  • Characteristics distinguishing effective from ineffective counselors
  • Counseling techniques and practice
  • Understanding the counseling process
  • Creating a personal theory of counseling
  • Issues and trends in counseling the bereaved

Graduates of this seminar will be able to integrate theory, research, and practice in meaningful ways. You’ll return home with many new learned and practiced counseling skills.
