Learn how to radically shift the way you show up and offer grief- literate support in your work
I design educational trainings tailored to your needs to help inform your or your organization's understanding of grief and loss. This includes the broadening of grief related language and vocabulary, operating procedures and an improved ability to navigate the complex landscape of grief and loss.
*Our grief illiterate western world- The effects of a hurried society
* Why words matter- what to say less of and what to say more of
* Supporting through the lens of diversity- understanding the role of culture and religion in grief
* What holding space for someone means- providing compassionate, meaningful support
* How to apply new language, practices, skills and build a framework for a grief literate practice

Really appreciate you providing this training for our organization. Many of our clients have experienced hard loss and the more we know about how to support in those experiences in a way that helps is going to be beneficial to their own recovery too. I also really appreciated your style of teaching and the humour you injected into this. It made the training so much more engaging
I am so grateful for this training Suzz. I thought that I was pretty grief literate but now see I had so much to still learn and want to continue to. You are right, the curriculum in school for therapists is not deep enough to understand grief and loss. I especially appreciated learning about cultural implications of assumptions when it comes to grief and how our implicit bias can get in the way without is even knowing. I have been telling everyone about this training.
I wanted to share with you how impactful your video grief training video was for me. My one take away from a DEI perspective was to not assume that every person who is say... First Nations grieves the same way. As I expand my worldview to see the world from other people’s perspective there is still more growth I need to do than just taking the easy road and assuming that all Christian, or Muslim or Atheist people MUST hold the same view of death, suicide, grief, dying, MAID. The example you used of your client who is First Nations but holds a different perspective than what is traditionally taught was a really good growing point for me. Thank you for sharing your wisdom...it made a difference to my personal and professional growth.
Suzz, the work you do is so important and I am so glad that I was able to take this training with you. You left me with so many things to think about as I move forward in my own work as a Death Doula and showing up for families. I cannot thank you enough for this. Really super meaningful.
