Bereavement Workshops

Bereavement Workshops

For 2021 we present a series of introductory workshops on a range of topics covering loss and bereavement.

Who are they for?

Professionals and volunteers who may wish to learn more about loss and bereavement and for those working with people who have experienced a major loss.

Our workshops are framed relative to the HSE palliative care competence framework at level two – for people whose work increasingly sees them engaging with people facing loss, bereavement and death. Specifically, the competence dimension for grief and loss; and the competence dimension for communication are of relevance to workshop content and learning outcomes.


Professional accreditation is under application from the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Ireland. If you have other accreditation needs please contact us. A certificate of participation/attendance at the workshops is available on request.
