Embracing Difference

The Grief Centre

Who should attend this webinar?

Anyone who works in a professional care role or supports people through all forms of grief and loss e.g. Social Workers, Teachers, Counsellors, Doctors, EMT, Corrections, Mental Health, Hospice, Volunteers etc.



In this webinar we will explore working with difference and look at how it can affect the relationship we have with our clients and their grief-journey. There will be time for self-reflection for participants, creating further insight into their own life and practice, as well as theoretical underpinning of the concepts presented.
