    The powerful, energizing techniques of life coaching can be applied to oneself very effectively, and this workshop does just that. The goal is to not only provide stimulus for your own growth, but to also enhance your skills as a coach to others. You will emerge from the day with a crystal clear sense of your deeply held values, a series of resolutions setting the stage for personal change and growth, a “Why Bother List” that informs and propels that change, and a specific action plan with checkpoints and techniques to stay on the path. The workshop is taught with an eye towards inspiring you to live the grandest version of the greatest vision of yourselves, and to learn that only by reaching towards that vision and modeling that kind of courage, can you help children and teens in the most powerful of ways. Be prepared to do quite a bit of self-exploration and “self-coaching” in this workshop both as ways to fully understand the coaching process and to maximize your own effectiveness in your work.

    (This is part of the Coaching Children and Teens Certificate Program, but you do not need to enroll in the program to take this workshop.)

    Grief Counseling: Coping with Loss and Uncertainty

    Approved by NASW NH Chapter for 6 Category 1 CE Credits, Auth. #3161

    Coping with loss is a universal human experience that is present throughout the life cycle. In this workshop, we will explore how grief affects quality of life at various developmental stages. You will become familiar with clinical interventions to address the needs of children, individuals, and families coping with grief as a result of various types of loss. You’ll address not only grief associated with death, but also focus on loss in relationships (divorce, breakups, betrayal), jobs, sudden disasters, and chronic illnesses. Techniques for coping with loss will be examined through lecture, interactive activities, case review, and small group discussion, and you’ll take away added insight and tools to enhance your professional work.
