‘Dying to Talk’ Free bereavement training for Primary schools

The one day training at St Elizabeth Hospice on Tuesday 28th March 2023, 9AM – 4PM.

The ‘Dying to Talk’ training covers a wide range of issues linked to bereavement and loss at a young age.

Each school is allocated two spaces and we suggest a mix of academic and pastoral staff to attend.

The training is comprehensive and covers the following topics:

  • Active listening and communication skills
  • Models of grief and how they fit in the real world
  • Ages and stages – practical methods of working with bereaved young people
  • Responding to difficult questions, funerals, inquests and sudden losses
  • Supporting families living with progressive illness
  • Reflective practice and how to use it

After the training, the school can participate in an accreditation process to gain additional support and training from St Elizabeth Hospice.

All training is delivered in person in the education department at St Elizabeth Hospice, 565 Foxhall road, Ipswich. Refreshments are provided but attendees will need to bring their own lunch.
