The MCertified Training Center offers affordable, ongoing education.  Here are a couple past courses offered.

Helping Teens Work Through Grief

This workshop explores the implications of grief and loss and how it presents itself in the youth that we service. Topics covered include:

  • Identifying and assessing grief and loss responses in the youth you serve.

  • Learning how to appropriately respond to a youth’s grief and loss.

  • Providing parents and/or caregivers the support and tools needed to care for the youth through their tough time.

Resilience and Compassion Fatigue Training

Social service providers can become so focused on the needs of those they serve that they forget to take time out for themselves. Participants will explore effective strategies for coping with compassion fatigue as well as for developing professional and personal resilience, such as:

  • Describing the reasons and causes that lead to vulnerability when dealing with client trauma.

  • Defining compassion, compassion fatigue, and burnout.

  • Developing strategies for building and maintaining resilience.

  • Creating a plan for self-care to promote personal well-being.
