For who is the course designed?
This 6-month course is designed for those who are interested to cooperate with our organization and who would like to participate in activities that we organize, e.g. become monitors at summer camps for children and adolescents who have lost a loved one. The course is a preparation course for working with children and families after loss.
After successful completion of the course, participants may be offered volunteer work or, in certain cases, employment contract.
Characteristics of the training
The training combines theory and practice. Many of the exercises are experiential. We use the method of Creative Accompaniment, a holistic working model that integrates psychodynamic principles, gestalt therapy and psychodrama.
Participants have to be prepared to work at an intense emotional level. An amount of reading and work online is an essential part of the course. The course is conducted in English; therefore a good command of the language is necessary.
The course has been created and will be conducted by Iván Gómez García.
Who can apply?
The course is suitable for professionals who are in contact with bereaved children and families – doctors, nurses, social workers, psychologists, psychotherapists, pedagogues, play therapists, physiotherapists, chaplains and students of these fields interested in bereavement.
