Kate’s Club to offer grief support training

Kate’s Club will be offering more opportunities for our volunteer Buddies to receive training in grief, loss and bereavement. These full-day interactive sessions will be offered twice per year. All current Buddies, and those who wish to become Buddies, are welcome.

Volunteer Facilitator Training

Sharon Scott will be the guest speaker and has been the Bereavement Coordinator for Hospice Atlanta since 1985.
Sunday, September 25th 10:30 – 4:30 p.m. Kate’s Club Clubhouse
Please RSVP by calling (404) 347-7619 or email debra@katesclub.org

OBJECTIVES:
– Increasing comfort level with talking about death and dying
– Increasing comfort level with facilitation of groups and activities
– Dispelling myths and misconceptions about kids and grief
– Acquiring tools and resources to create your own “Bag of Tricks”

Healthy grieving is most importantly about remembering, and as adults working with children and teens who are grieving, we need to be well equipped to listen with empathy and authenticity as they remember. Greater understanding and self-awareness are important for us all, and on-going training is the best way to assure that we are providing the most effective (and safe and fun!) programming possible.
