Group Facilitators

Group facilitators participate as active listeners, discussion leaders, and support persons in our bereavement support groups. There is no formal counseling or therapy as part of these groups. To become a facilitator, an individual will interview with our grief services coordinator, attend facilitator training, and any additional in-services as presented. Group facilitation experience is not necessary, as all volunteers will participate in an initial training program and shadow experienced facilitators before being assigned to a group. Group facilitation can also be used as an intern experience for those in social work or counselor training programs.
