Mayo workshop for frontline professional dealing with bereaved families

By 10th February 2023No Comments

Anam Cara – the organisation set up by bereaved parents for bereaved parents –  will be facilitating a workshop for frontline professionals who are in contact with bereaved families in Castlebar, Co Mayo on Tuesday, March 7 next.

The training will be delivered by facilitator Jannah Battigan in the TF Royal Hotel from 10am until 12 noon.

While grieving is a normal response to death and loss, families who have experienced the death of a loved one may be struggling with their grief and require additional support.

The workshop facilitator is Jannah Battigan.

This bereavement support could come from a number of sources in order to address their complex and potentially long-term needs.
Anam Cara Mayo is part of a national organisation that provides information, support and resources to bereaved parents after the death of their child.

Anam Cara understands the challenges front-line professionals must face each day when supporting these families, in particular those bereaved in traumatic circumstances.
The aim of the Bereavement Information Morning in Castlebar is: ‘To introduce you, as a frontline professional, to the differences between normal and complex grief and the importance of self-care’.

The event begins at 10.15am with tea/coffee and scones being served.
Start: 10.30am – Welcome

10.45am – Jannah input on the differences between normal and complex grief

11.30am Question and Answer Forum

11.45am – Selfcare when on the Front-line of Grief

12.00 – Close of Event

Please note this informal morning is open to all frontline personnel in contact with bereaved families through their role at work.
