Grief, Crisis & Trauma Self-Study Certificate Course

A number of individuals have asked about obtaining a certificate in grief counseling to show that training has been completed. It is now possible to receive a Certificate of Completion for “Grief Support and Counseling,” from the H. Norman Wright Institute of Grief, Crisis and Trauma Counseling.

There are benefits to an extension class—you can study at your own pace, the cost of the course is significantly less and in addition there is personal consultation with the instructor, which is a rare opportunity.          

Students will be equipped to minister to others during a time of grief, crisis and trauma. This self-study program will be taught through materials written and recommended by Dr. Norman Wright as well as time with Dr. Wright via three (3) ½ hour phone sessions. Students will learn how to help others by reading verbatims of actual counseling sessions and observing actual counseling sessions. This is provided in this course as well as the latest content. 

We will guide you in the assignments. Cost of this course is $395, which includes the books, DVDs and phone consultations.
