An Introduction to Theories and Techniques for Supporting People who are Grieving: Webinar Recording

As professionals and human beings, supporting people who are grieving is complex and difficult; seeing others in suffering can make us feel helpless.

Nathan MacArthur and I are two specialist Grief and Trauma Counsellors who have over 30 years of bereavement experience between us. In this 2-hour webinar we share the theories, techniques and therapeutic stances we find most helpful in our work with bereaved people. 


We discuss: 

  • the impacts of grief (physical, cognitive, emotional, social, spiritual)

  • using theories of grief in practice

  • assessing and responding to needs and risks

  • creative ways to support someone who is grieving

  • counselling strategies for working with powerful emotions (e.g. guilt and anger)

  • self-care in the context of working with death, dying and grief
