Grief support programs: Teaming up to achieve more

COVID has dramatically changed how people grieve the loss of a loved one. Families are struggling with grief alone because of social distancing measures and visitation policies. As part of its ‘Supporting our Communities in the time of COVID-19’  program, BCCPC partnered with the End of Life Doula Association of Canada in June 2020 to pilot a 12-session grief group based on Francis Weller’s The Wild Edges of Sorrow.

The training will be supplemented with a facilitator guide and access to coaching and mentoring.
