Traumatic Grief, Loss and Domestic Violence: Supporting Survivors

Grieving is a normal response to loss, whether the loss was expected, sudden, or lasting. Traumatic grief is when grief goes on longer or when it is overwhelming. Survivors of domestic violence are grieving for multiple losses, many of which go unrecognized and unacknowledged. Experiences of trauma such as domestic violence, homelessness, and sexual assault may result in compounding traumatic grief responses.

This training will provide tools to give a sense of security and consistency to adult and child survivors and offer long-term support and advocacy on their behalf. The trauma-informed practical approaches will enhance your services and empathy for those whom you serve.
