Bereavement Training Program
(RTS, HOPES, CARE, SEASONS)
This two-day program is designed for health professionals who want to improve their skills in working with families who have experienced the loss of a child, adult, or significant other, whether suddenly or through long-term illness. The program will focus on providing assistance at the time of the loved one's death, as well as follow-up care. As bereavement support personnel you can help families move through the initial crisis toward reestablishing their life without their loved one. This belief is the foundation for the bereavement Training Programs at LLUMC: H.O.P.E.S. (Healing of Parents Experiencing Sorrow), C.A.R.E. (Comfort and Recovery Experience), SEASONS (Sensitive Emergent Approach to Significant Others Needs in Sorrow), and RTS (formally known as Resolve Through Sharing).
Target Audience: Child life specialists, clergy, nurses, physicians, social workers, and others interested in working with bereaved families.
