Holding Space Training

For three days in early August  Amy Wright Glenn will lead a 12-hour Holding Space Training for qualified professionals  interested in strengthening their skills to offer bereavement care/consultations during the global Covid-19 pandemic and beyond.

The 12-hour online training includes three two-hour modules presented live via Zoom, completion of assigned reading, 2 one-on-one sessions with a partner, and a one-on-one conversation with Amy in preparation for this work. Participants can pace themselves through the training ~ and all modules are recorded. This training supports professionals to deepen their skill in offering consultations to the bereaved.

Now, more than ever, the work of this Institute is vital.

Now, more than ever, the work of holding space offers healing balm and guiding light.
