What is involved in the training?
Grief Recovery Method Certification Training is unlike most training you will have undergone before. Working with grief is a very human experience and we like to keep the training as human as possible. Therefore we use extremely little technology in the workshop, instead most of the time you will either be listening to your instructor give information, participating in discussion or working on your own or in small groups on practical work.
2 part programme:
Part 1 - the Personal Workshop
We strongly believe that it is wrong to ask someone else to do something we haven't done ourselves. Therefore the first half of the training is a personal workshop where we ask you to temporarily park the desire to help others and help yourself. Your trainer will lead you through the Grief Recovery Method step by step as you work on a personal loss. You will also get additional information about why the steps are there to help inform you to be ready to share these steps with your future clients.
Part 2 - the Certification
Having completed the Grief Recovery Method we then proceed to teach you how to teach it to others, covering additional skills that you'll need along the way.
By the end of the programme you will be able to:
understand the GRM definitions of grief
identify the 40+ life events that invoke grief
understand how misinformation surrounding grief and loss impedes recovery
recognise Short Term Energy Relieving Behaviours that appear to help recovery but actually suppress it.
understand the actions required to complete recovery
know how to help others achieve the actions required, leading them safely through the process with compassion
recognise that you are the guide to a person's recovery - you can't do it for them
demonstrate how each action is achieved remembering that in Grief Recovery "leader always goes first"
understand how to promote the benefits of Grief Recovery to maximise participation
