Please note: 
This workshop has been designed as a follow up to our "Loss and Bereavement Awareness" training day. It is recommended that people attend "Loss and Bereavement Awareness" first to gain understanding of the subject area; however, participants working as a counsellor or therapist would be able to attend the advanced workshop without attending our foundation course provided that they:

  • Have a basic grasp of some bereavement theory and what grief is. 
  • Familarity with using person centred counselling materials. 
  • Be able to use basic counselling skills.

If you have any questions about the suitability of this workshop please contact us via training@cruse.org.uk and we'll call you to discuss further.
