Summer Institute on Grief and Loss
Now in its 29th year, the NCDE holds a week long conference on the Mount Ida campus in Newton, Massachusetts. We invite you to participate in any or all sessions. This educational forum provides you with opportunities to make connections, share ideas, collect information, network with colleagues and hear from leaders in the field of thanatology.
Another way to gain advance your professional development in thanatology and gain credits toward our Certificate in Thanatology is to attend our National Center for Death Education’s (NCDE) Summer Institute on Grief and Loss. This much anticipated week-long program brings together the very best experts in the field to share the latest professional trends, developments and issues.
Comprised of a series of workshops focused on grief, loss and bereavement, you will explore counseling and educational techniques that include building interpersonal skills and assessing individual needs.
