Support Group Facilitator Training


Enthusiasm for bereavement support group counseling has burgeoned in recent years. And while training opportunities that advance our understanding of the bereavement process have become more available recently, less work has been done on the support group models of care. This seminar helps fill this gap.

Topics covered will include:

Support group leadership skills

Barriers to effectiveness in support group counseling

Detailed guidelines for operational practices (such as size of group, length, and frequency of sessions)

Development of ground rules

Distinguishing open-ended from closed-ended groups

Elements of pre-screening group members

Intervening with disruptive group members

Publicizing your group

Participants will receive a copy of Understanding Your Grief, The Understanding Your Grief Journal, and The Understanding Your Grief Support Group Guide.
