Grief & Loss Buddy Training

Course date: 
Monday, February 4, 2019 - 09:30 to Thursday, February 7, 2019 - 16:30
Course description: 

Being a buddy is a great gift to a grieving child as it provides safe, respectful and compassionate support for them as they are going through big changes in their lives. Our Grief & Loss Buddy Training provides the right tools to help the Buddy remain emotionally strong for the child and fulfil the duties of the role. Participants will be taught skills to help children make creative choices in dealing with grief and loss and helps participants become more aware of the tasks of mourning as applied to children. This is a pre-requisite for volunteering at Paradise Kids. The course is provided FREE if you are prepared to sign up to work with children over seven weeks in the after-school program on Tuesday, Thursday or Saturday mornings for one or more terms a year. Our February 2019 intake is held onsite, in our Training Room over four days. PK Buddies need to have a current Blue card to work with children or be able to apply for one.
