At the Loss Foundation we are committed to changing the way society thinks about death and bereavement. We know how hard it can be to know the “right” thing to say when someone is bereaved. The fear of saying something “wrong” and upsetting the person often causes many of us to avoid the subject, or even the grieving person altogether.
All of the content is developed by Clinical Psychologists who specialise in bereavement support and involves sharing evidence-based psychological models of grief. All support is based on the feedback and needs evidenced by the wider public. We’ve been at the front line and we’re here to share what we’ve learned!
We are offering bereavement expert guidance for mental health practitioners, companies, individuals and healthcare staff on how to handle delicate situations with the highest standard of care for use in the workplace, with patients or service users, and personally.
We offers 4 different content options depending on your training needs.
1. Live webinars are scheduled regularly on a variety of bereavement-related subjects and include a Q&A with The Loss Foundation’s director and founder Dr Erin Thompson who also designed all contents in a her capacity as a qualified clinical psychologist.
2. Interactive workshops provide a in-depth experience and safe space to discuss confidential cases you may have and include practical case studies. These events are also designed and led by Dr Erin Thompson.
3. CPD recordings. This option allows you the flexibility to access The Loss Foundation’s expert knowledge in small recorded sessions units whenever you schedule permits. Certificates are sent on request.

Research has consistently shown that lack of support in the workplace when grieving can have many negative effects for companies. Productivity can be lowered following a loss, with difficulties in concentration and judgment, stress, depression, lack of motivation and substance abuse.Lack of concern, compassion and support can have drastic effects for the employee, employers and wider organisation. This can include absenteeism, errors and even financial consequences.
“The information regarding differing responses for differing states of grief and how everyone grieves in an individual way was extremely useful.”
“The most helpful part of the workshop was learning the immediate things to consider when speaking with an employee who has had a bereavement.”
“Erin and Kirsten were brilliant presenters!”
“I really enjoyed the workshop and it would be useful for manager level employees.”
