Professional Training & Education
The National Alliance for Grieving Children (NAGC) equips bereavement professionals, children’s health professionals and volunteers who work with grieving children with the most effective strategies and tools to better serve their communities and train their staff and constituents. When it comes to continuing education, we work diligently with our partners to discover and communicate new developments and research advances specific to our field and the well being of grieving children.
From mental health counselors to pediatric health care providers, the issues surrounding childhood bereavement are often not addressed in academic programs and credentialing preparation. Professionals that do not interact with bereaved children on a daily basis require accurate information and resources to enhance their ability to provide proper care for a grieving child. As a result, we’ve made educating and training the vast children’s health community representing a number of professions (i.e., social workers, counselors, physicians, etc.) a top priority.
