How long is this course? What if the funeral is tomorrow?
The course is self-paced, meaning you can do it as quickly or as slowly as you like. It’s set up to be delivered over five days with daily emails being sent out with an overview of the topic for that day. In each module, you’ll explore a new aspect of grief and learn a new technique for introducing it to your child. The goal is not to overwhelm you. So the course is paced out so that you’ll have time to absorb and implement what you learn.
If you have an immediate need for the lessons in the course, such as needing to immediately prepare for a funeral, simply click on that module and away you go. Or, as always, you can book a session directly with me by clicking here.
How is this different from grief counseling?
Typically, grief counseling is about working through your trauma — it is a type of therapy that can address the physical, emotional, social, spiritual, and cognitive responses to loss. This course focuses much more on helping your child work through grief, how to introduce the concept of loss and death, and to help you understand what they might be feeling during these difficult times.
In short, this course is not therapy although the benefits often feel therapeutic. It’s education coupled with proven techniques to help your child develop a healthy relationship with grief, death, and loss.
I'm scared of death myself, will this help me? Will I really be able to help my child?
Our goal is to equip you with the best possible knowledge and techniques so that you can help establish a healthy relationship with loss, death, and grief for your child. The course features advice and techniques developed by a registered psychotherapist (Colleen Mousseau) and professional grief coach (me, Tammy) to help you help your child but it also will benefit you.
