Cecil Fike has been conducting workshops and seminars for
more than 25 years throughout the southeast and is available
to conduct training events for interested groups and organizations
on all aspects of the grief process. Workshops include:
Understanding the Grief Process
Understanding the normal process that one goes through
following any loss helps both the person who is experiencing grief
and those who seek to minister to them. This workshop is basic
for anyone who desires work with grieving persons whether in
small groups or in one to one support.
Understanding Complicated Grief
The impact of multiple losses, sudden death, traumatic losses such
as murder, suicide or natural disasters requires an understanding of
the cause and effect of such losses. This workshop helps the
participant recognize the symptoms of complicated or morbid grief
experiences and know when to refer for more intense therapy.
The loss of a loved one is usually the most stressful event
in any person's life.
Granger Westberg would NEVER lead a
grief workshop without including a session on stress management. This
workshop is designed to help the participant to better understand
the cause and effect of stress on the physical wellbeing of the
individual and look at ways to counteract those effects.
Children Also Grieve
Understanding that children also grieve and are greatly effected by
losses of loved ones is essential for anyone who works with children
and their parents. This workshop will look at the children's grief
as influenced by their age and developmental stage and will include
suggestions for helping them in different times in their lives.
This workshop is designed to train those persons who are looking to
start a Good Grief Group. Every
aspect of the workbook are discussed with suggestions for organizing
successful support groups.
Workshops can be scheduled individually or combined into one or
two day seminars. Contact Cecil Fike
for more details and to discuss scheduling and honorariums and fees.
