Bereavement Training

Bereavement training is central to The Irish Hospice Foundation’s bereavement programme.  We strive to provide accessible, high quality training for professionals, volunteers and others with an interest in learning more about bereavement.


Hosted by the Bereavement Education & Resource Centre at The Irish Hospice Foundation, our workshops focus on a range of topics associated with bereavement, including children and adolescents, suicide and addiction.
Every year roughly 400 people take part in our workshops. 
Workshops are suitable for people requiring basic up to intermediate level bereavement theory for professional or volunteer development.

Each workshop is led by an international speaker who is a specialist in their field.  To find out more about past workshops please click here.
