Part of:
4:15 PM, Saturday 5 Oct 2019 (30 minutes)
During this presentation, we describe a bereavement training project initiated by Inuit living in Salluit and Montreal. Funded by SSHRC as wells as the Nunavik Regional Health board, this training is offered to local Inuit volunteers and employees interested in training and/or supporting community members who are grieving. This may be due to normal or traumatic grief. We will describe the overall themes discussed in the trainings, the unique factors to consider in providing grief support in Inuit communities, as well as the steps taken to partner with local families and organizations. We will also provide an outline of future objectives.
