Broadening Our Definition Of Grief and Loss: How Do I Identify It In My Work? What Do I Do With It? – Free webinar CLE / Victims also encouraged to attend
DOWNLOAD Slides and Handouts Here.
Victims of all crimes can experience grief and loss as a result of the crime. In order to effectively work with victims as advocates and prosecutors, we need to understand what the grieving process looks like, what happens when old wounds are not healed, the difference between grief and trauma reactions, and how to respond to someone experiencing grief and loss. The Minnesota Alliance on Crime is hosting a free 2-part webinar on May 3 and 10 from 1-2 pm to explore these issues. The presenter, Jennifer Baker-Jones, is the Clinical Supervisor and therapist at the Center for Grief, Loss and Transition in St. Paul, MN. She has over ten years of experience working with clients specifically around trauma, abuse, and grief. She has worked with clients in outpatient settings as well as clients involved in Criminal Justice and Child Protection systems. Melissa Hoffman Bodin, the Executive Director of Pathways of West Central MN, Inc., will also share her personal experience with loss and the insights she has gained from the grieving process that inform her work as a sexual assault advocate. 2 CLE credits will be applied for.
In order to attend the full two-hours of training, you will need to sign up for both webinar dates. We strongly encourage you to attend both.
