COPE offers professional bereavement and grief training on various topics through the lens of holistic care and social justice.

Education on death, dying, and bereavement is one of many ways to validate the experiences of grievers and create grief-informed environments.

Led by licensed clinicians, virtual or in-person trainings equip laypersons, educators, mental health, and health professionals on pertinent issues. These trainings are open to organizations such as schools, libraries, houses of worship, and nonprofits.
