Training on Supporting Grieving Students

By Lauren Goldberg, January 21, 2022

The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life is hosting a 1.5 hour in person training for staff and faculty, “How to Support Grieving Students on Campus” with free lunch available afterwards. This 1.5 hour experiential, interactive workshop will encourage participants to explore their own history of and beliefs about grief. We will examine how our own beliefs effect the way we support others and learn strategies to be present to those who are in pain.
