About the Course

A two-week online course for any individual who wants to develop understanding and a method for facilitating a 6-week Loss through Death Group, in their organization, or community. This course has been modified to train both facilitating an in-person support group or online virtual support group. The material can be adapted to other loss support groups, not just a loss through death.

The online program is divided into two Modules presented each week by one of the Centre’s expert grief therapists/trainers. The format for the online course is a weekly Zoom meeting where the course facilitator provides an opportunity for course participants to ask questions for further understanding and deeper discussions of topics in grief and loss, specific to the type of loss through death the participant may be thinking to offer in their community. Participants go online to review weekly material, participate with other participants, and course facilitators in Forum questions and answers.


a 30-minute Zoom is scheduled on day one of the online class opening, to provide participants and facilitators a chance to introduce themselves, review the course expectations and answer any questions participants may have.

Module 1: Week 1

Covers a general introduction of concepts and approaches in grief and loss, review of models of grief, elements of an effective support group, an in-depth review of sessions 1, 2 & 3 of your six-week support group

Module 2: Week 2

Covers questions arising from Week 1 Forum discussions, in depth review of sessions 4, 5 & 6 of the six-week support group. Session six covers things to think about when you are in your last session with the group; rituals and practices and closing off activities are presented.
