Understanding traumatic bereavement
Support Worker, Social Work
Gain an understanding of how the traumatic nature of a death may impact grief and learn how therapeutic opportunities can help with the grieving process.
David Trickey – Consultant Clinical Psychologist, The Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families
David has extensive clinical experience working with children and families, specialising in complex trauma and traumatic bereavement. He has worked as a clinical psychologist in paediatrics and as a lead consultant psychologist at a number of hospitals and trauma centres nationally.
Who should attend?
Suitable for all those whose work involves supporting those traumatically bereaved.
We encourage prospective participants to consider their own experience of loss and how it might affect them during training. Generally speaking, our training is not usually suited to anyone who has suffered a recent, significant personal loss or bereavement.
“I had very little knowledge of what constituted a ‘traumatic bereavement’ and how this affects the grief process and how it can link to post traumatic stress disorder. I feel this course has helped me to understand more, particularly the risk factors associated with post traumatic stress disorder.” Children’s Hospice Nurse
