Testimonials

I have been working in grief and bereavement for over thirty years and can honestly say this was the best continuing education session I have ever attended.


Lynn, Clinical Social Worker

As a clinical supervisor for both therapists and interns, I have now made all of your continuing education webinars required for all our new staff and interns. I sought out grief education for our team and participated in many live and self-paced options through many of the ‘big’ CE providers. None provided a fraction of the insight, research, or relevance as those provided by What’s Your Grief. Your clinical experience and engaging presentation style, coupled with a tremendous knowledge of the field, make for a great session every time. Thank you


David, Social Worker

Incredible training. I came into this thinking I was here to learn for my clients but came out with so much more understanding of my own grief. I am a bit embarrassed to say that for many years I have listed ‘grief’ as one of the issues I help clients with. This workshop highlighted how little I knew about supporting people in grief and how outdated my ideas were. I now feel much better equipped to help clients and to understand my own experiences. The three hours flew by. This session completed my CE hour requirements for the year, but I will still be signing up for several of your upcoming sessions.
