Understanding bereavement workshops

At St Giles we’re trying to break the taboo that surrounds talking about dying and help people to be better equipped to deal with it.

We believe that enabling our communities to understand bereavement is essential so we deliver workshops in workplaces, clubs, schools and other groups.

Our Understanding Bereavement Workshops can be tailored to suit your needs and are available in one or two hour sessions.

Workshops explore: 

·         How grief can affect people
·         Secondary losses and their impact
·         Hints and tips for supporting children
·         Supporting staff in the workplace
·         Behaviours associated with grief
·         Self-awareness – who supports the supporter?
·         The importance of signposting

“The bereavement workshop provided good training on a difficult subject. It was informative and I especially enjoyed the family exercise and talking through ideas.”
