Educational Courses

All participants who attend MABF courses will be given a certificate of attendance.

This may be used by professionals to form part of their professional training requirements such as PREPP.

Accreditation is in place on some courses validated by ABC (CENTRA).

All participants will receive up to date literature on the subject as well as a reading list and articles.

All training is practically based but includes the relevant theory and research in the area.

Our workshop leaders are all qualified and experienced professionals who are actively involved in bereavement.

Training can be carried out in your own workplace, at the offices of the MABF or at an alternative venue depending on the numbers involved.

Individualised training programmes can be designed and tailor made to meet the needs of your organisation or group. For further information, contact us here.
