About the Training

Native people, families and communities experience much loss and consequently grief during a lifetime. Death of loved ones, suicide, loss of relationships, living in the past due to daily reminders of pain and hurt experienced by a different generation and more. This often keeps Native people in a state of grief and keeps us stuck. Due to the impacts of colonization, healthy grieving processes have faded and have been replaced by unhealthy grieving practices including not grieving at all. Unresolved grief impacts tribal and organizational leaders, clients of programs, staff, young people and every community member. This creates negative energy in our homes, places of work and community and we feed off of that energy which promotes more negative actions and responses which then contributes to chronic negativity that plagues many of us.

This training is to help individuals, tribal and organizational programs better understand grief, grieving and how to help yourself and others through the grieving process. Each participant will receive a handout packet, resources and ideas to integrate into programming for their community. Whether you work with youth, health, social services, law enforcement or beyond, learning how to move beyond grief will positively impact you and the people you serve.

  • What is Grief
