MHTTC Grief Sensitive Virtual Learning Institute
On behalf of all Mental Health Technology Transfer Centers and the National Coordinating Office, we are pleased to announce that registration is open for the two-part, no-cost MHTTC Grief Sensitive Virtual Learning Institute.
In the wake of COVID - 19 and the loss and grief experienced by our communities and schools, we are offering a two-part MHTTC Grief Sensitive Virtual Learning Institute to provide grief sensitive approaches, evidence-based practices, tools and strategies for community and school practitioners.
September 10 & 11th: Grief Sensitivity Institute Part 1: Grounding ourselves in the basics (frameworks, definitions, and foundational concepts)
November 12 & 13th Grief Sensitivity Institute Part 2: Applying concepts to practice
The Institute includes:
· Tracked Learning- Each Institute has four sessions with three learning tracks (you are open to attend any session in any track):
· Grief Sensitivity
· Evidence-Based Practices for Clinicians, and
· School Mental Health.
· Reflective Discussion- On both days of each Institute, we’ll host optional breakout discussions for participants to join, listen and learn from each other’s expertise and experience.
· Opening Keynote & Closing Activity-
· On Day 1 of both Institutes, we open with a keynote from Dr. Kathy Schear, founder and director of the Center for Complicated Grief
· On Day 2 of both Institutes, we close with a youth listening session on grief and healing
The speakers for each session will be replicated for Part 1 and Part 2 so that our learning is continuous and grows together.
Please stay tuned for our upcoming announcement with session speakers, session descriptions, and session sign ups. In the meantime, a sneak preview:
· Renowned author & scholar on death education and counseling Dr. Kenneth Doka on disenfranchised grief
· National teachers and leaders who support school communities through loss, bereavement, and grief like Dr. David Schonfeld from the National Center for School Crisis & Bereavement and professor and podcast creator Dr. Aaamina Norris
· Evidence based and culturally defined grief counseling practioners such as grief support center Our-House and Dr. Nadeau, faculty for the Association for Death Education and Advanced Grief Therapy teacher
· And so many more incredible speakers to support our grief sensitivity workforce development.
Join us for some of the sessions, all of the sessions, one of the institutes or both; the MHTTC Grief Sensitivity Virtual Learning Institute aims to provide us with tools and strategies that can be used when addressing the needs of individuals experiencing grief and loss during COVID-19 and beyond.
