Training: SUPPORTING PARENTS FOLLOWING BABY LOSS – TRAINING

Supporting Parents Following Baby Loss

 

Providing psychological support to parents following the death of a baby or child can be an emotionally charged and challenging aspect of your work. Trying to create a safe space for parents to express their feelings of fear, anxiety, guilt, shame and anger, helping them to live alongside their grief and feel more able to cope in the world.

Recognising that there is little or no specialist baby loss training for counsellors, Petals, together with Bereavement Training International have designed a bespoke training workshop for counsellors and psychotherapists who are interested in working with parents following the death of a baby.

  • Target audience – Any professional counsellor or psychotherapist working in a therapeutic context with bereaved parents following the death of a baby.

  • Entry-level requirements – You should be a qualified counsellor or psychotherapist, with a minimum level 4 diploma in counselling, and be able to provide evidence of your qualification.
