The Caldera/Saindon training project was established in 2016 at the Virginia Mason Medical Center Foundation as a non-profit training entity for service providers of traumatic grief after a violent dying. The goal of this training is to equip local and regional service providers with up-to-date information surrounding traumatic bereavement in children and adults and how to support them in the aftermath of violent death.
This two-day conference will include both national and local speakers and various panel presentations to cover topics such as: bereavement after suicide, community supports post-death, spirituality, cultural competence, and the integration of theory and practice with bereaved children. In addition, a live client interview with Dr. Rynearson and experiential self-care session with Sandra López will enhance the learning experience.
