EduTherapy

Healing Your Heart – Take some time for “Self-Care” and sharpen your Grief Resolution Skills to help your Community.

September 23-26, 2016 –  Ottawa, ON

December 2-5, 2016 – Toronto, ON

Upcoming 2016 Certification Training:

  • Ottawa, ON: Sept 23-26, 2016

Grief and the conflicting emotions caused by loss are cumulative and most often have a cumulatively negative effect on our ability to participate in life. The primary goal of Edu-Therapy™ is to give people a solution to the pain, and focus on a solution-oriented

process to rediscover their ability to fully experience and participate in their lives. Edu-Therapy™ effectively eliminates the griever’s sense of isolation, by actively engaging them in emotionally helpful and liberating exercises. The Grief Edu-Therapy Certification is

a unique training program that teaches the specific tools to eliminate the emotional pain caused by loss of any type. For over 35 years, the care giving team at Edu-Therapy Solutions have been helping grievers rid themselves of the conflicting emotions and the often overwhelming pain as the result of cumulative unresolved losses. Our commitment to research and evidence-based solutions goes far beyond the short term “feel good” workshops, giving participants the ability to help themselves and help their community.

You will learn:

  • Dysfunctional ways people mishandle grief and its intergenerational effect on Communities
  • Emotional damage of rationalization and intellectualization
  • Why Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance Models are the wrong approach for grievers
  • Learn proper techniques for identifying and resolving loss and relationship conflicts
  • Edu-Therapy™ Process formats for individual and group work
  • How to expand your caregiving agency using the Edu-Therapy™ Process
  • How to resolve cumulative unresolved issues such as PTS and the Residential School Experience, abuse and trauma

Already a Certified Edu-Therapy™ Specialist?

Our program evolves, and although we provide you with the most current leader guides at no charge, with any participant workbook orders, a refresher program gives you the opportunity to experience the personal growth component the program offers.
