Introduction to the Science & Practice of Resilient Grieving
A self-directed course to expand your professional toolkit and make you a better coach.
What is in this programme?
Created in response to strong demand from coaches and other helping professionals, our introductory course builds the foundations of grief literacy and expands your coaching toolkit. 

So much grief goes unacknowledged and unspoken, causing untold harm, and keeping people stuck and helpless. We’re on a mission to change that!

Equipped with new tools and insights on Resilient Grieving you’ll be able to empower your clients to take an active approach to managing their grief. 

Participation in this course will enable you to teach clients how to live and grieve at the same time.

What people say...
“As a PreKure Mental Health Coach, Funeral Celebrant and Integrative Cancer Coach, I have seen the impact of “Resilient Grieving” to help those blindsided by grief to simply breathe easier and then to gain some feeling of control. Lucy’s work is a beacon. It busts through the old grief myths and offers a door through which to contemplate the possibility of reappraisal and renewal.”
Susie Brown
PreKure Mental Health Coach
Coping With Loss
“Lucy and Denise share a wealth of professional knowledge, and courageously combine the science of well-being and resilience psychology with real-life experience. Their delivery is warm and heartfelt, while the content offered a practical approach to resilient grieving, with evidence-based strategies, and tools that could be used with immediate effect. This learning is particularly relevant to healthcare professionals, working with individuals and their families at the end of life.”
Jacqui Swain
Coping With Loss
“I can't believe how much I've got out of this course. I learnt a lot, words to help describe or label thoughts and emotions. I enjoyed the science-based approach too and all the wonderful resources. I don't think my journey stops here, it’s made me more curious and not to be afraid, embrace the knowledge. Wonderful that you can go back and listen to again."
Jo Dobson
Occupational Therapist
Coping With Loss
“We have been using the Resilient Grieving model in our bereavement groups for about 3 years now. We introduced it after I read Resilient Grieving and was blown away (to my shame) that grief was the only clinical area where I was not applying the resilience research and understanding. I see the RG model helps embody the dual process model in our groups in a way that I had not managed before. It gives time for the loss orientated processing but also gives real time and place to the restoration orientated approach."

Coping With Loss

How does the programme work?

Whether you’re a coach or another form of helping professional, learning about Resilient Grieving is going to teach you vital skills for helping those who are coping with loss. 

Fifteen years of working in resilience psychology and more than a decade supporting people in grief has taught us three vital lessons: 1) just how much grief goes unnoticed and unacknowledged; 2) the scale of harm that causes; and 3) the large number of people who are desperate for tools to help them manage their grief. 

People want to be active participants exerting control over their struggles where they can, rather than helpless victims. They need coaches and other helping professionals who can support them on that journey.

Whether your clients recognise what they are feeling is grief or not, understanding the fundamental insights and strategies of Resilient Grieving will allow you to respond to their needs with the research-informed, and highly practical tools we’ve seen work for people globally. 

Help your clients feel more optimistic and empowered to face the future by upskilling in Resilient Grieving now.
