Grief Companioning Skills Training


While Comprehensive Bereavement Skills Training provides you with a large dose of the “body of knowledge” surrounding grief care, this training teaches you specific skills you need to help the griever engage in the active work of mourning. Dr. Wolfelt models and then gives you the opportunity to practice what he calls, “foundational grief counseling skills.”

This learning experience is a must for those wishing to “companion” people in their unique life and death journeys. It will teach caregivers how to effectively follow the lead of the “true expert,” the mourner.

The content of this seminar is appropriate both for novices and for experienced caregivers looking to update their helping skills.

Specific skills you will learn include: :

  • Subcomponents of active listening
  • Clarifying and perception checking
  • Two forms of leading
  • Appropriate use of questioning
  • Empathetic responsiveness
  • Supportive confrontation
  • Transitioning and summarizing

Graduates of this seminar will be able to integrate and practice the companioning model of grief care using their new helping skills.

Participants will receive a copy of Counseling Skills for Companioning the Mourner: The Fundamentals of Effective Grief Counseling and The Handbook for Companioning the Mourner.
