The Center for Loss and Life Transition announces two upcoming training sessions in Fort Collins, Colorado for those interested in becoming effective grief educators: July 20-23, 2020 and June 28 – July 1, 2021.

Entitled “Becoming an Effective Grief Educator” the four-day trainings, facilitated by world-enowned educator Dr. Alan Wolfelt, will enhance participants’ capacity to artfully educate others on grief and mourning. Whether the participant is interested in training others in their organization, speaking publicly in their community, or just wish to feel more confident in passing along information to clients, colleagues, or friends, this workshop will both inspire them and prepare them to be effective grief advocates.

Using the “Ten Touchstones” of his bestselling book Understanding Your Grief as a framework, Dr. Wolfelt will step participants though messaging and methods for educating others about the basics of grief, mourning, and healing. Dr. Wolfelt will also share practical insider tips on topics such as event formats, engaging audiences, creating teaching objectives, building relationships with potential sponsors, and more. Included in the training materials is Understanding Your Grief, written by Dr. Wolfelt.
