Working with grievers is incredibly rewarding and inspiring, however it can be isolating and draining for the care provider.

Want more ideas about how to help a grieving widow or widower?

Need more activities for working with children who have had a parent or sibling die?

Want a current list of books and articles about suicide loss or overdose death loss?

Don’t know what to say and NOT say to a client who has had a significant loss?

Feeling stuck with clients who have had major losses but keep telling the same stories over and over again?

How It Works:

  • There is a different topic related to grief each month,

  • You get pertinent and current information

  • You get a list of resources (i.e. websites, groups, books) related to that topic,

  • You get 1 CEU (for MFT/LCSW/LPC’s in California).
