New! Birth & Bereavement Support: A Day Training Workshop

This is a society awakening, profession lifting, life changing event,
open to any group of learners.

Here are the ways we expect participants to be challenged in this day training:

  • Learners will know: Participants will demonstrate an understanding of a topic as it relates to new systems and larger perspectives, measured by a completed posttest concentrated on each of the objectives for the day workshop.
  • Learners will know how: Both the day workshop and the online discussion group are developed to foster participants’ abilities to inquire via identifying and posing questions, designing and conducting investigations, analyzing data and evidence, using models and explanations, and communicating findings.
  • Learners will do: Learners will participate in authentic or real-world experiences in which they engage in dialogue, take action, and reflect on possible outcomes.
  • Learners will show: Learners will demonstrate new skills through simulation.
