Working with Grieving Persons Served

Join Illume: The Behavioral Health Center of Excellence  for an in-person training on Friday, September 16th, from 8:30a.m.-12:30p.m. (Central)

Behavioral health workers often work with vulnerable people who experience greater risk of experiencing death and non-death related losses.  Despite this, many behavioral health workers are not trained in effective interventions for grieving clients or have enough information about different aspects of grief and how it can impact overall treatment goals and recovery for those they serve.  This training will allow participants to, 1) obtain knowledge about different types of grief and non-death related losses, 2) identify how their own losses and beliefs about grief and death may impact their work as well as those they serve, 3) identify tools and techniques to help better serve those who have experienced death and non-death related losses, and 4) practice and apply tools and techniques utilized to help those who are grieving. The presentation is open to the public. Behavioral health professionals who attend may apply for up to 3 CEUs.

***Warning: Please note that this workshop will involve exploration of your own personal losses through activities, discussions, and reflection. While participation in these explorations will be voluntary, hearing others share about their experiences, in addition to any explorations you choose to participate in, may result in intense feelings of grief for those who have experienced loss.
