This training in Loss and Grief hosted by Envision Counseling is intended for mental health professionals who are interested in        exploring how North American dominant narratives on grief impact bio-psychosocial experiences of loss via clinical theories, treatment models, natural bereavement styles, and healthy loss adaptation within the context of personal insight and professional awareness.
