Reproductive Grief Care for Clinics

 

One in four pregnancies ends in miscarriage and one in four women in the US will have an abortion by the age of 45. Although these losses occur very differently, the grief experience is similar and affects men, women, family members and friends. The Institute of Reproductive Grief Care's course for healthcare professionals, clinics, pregnancy centers, universities and social service agencies, can bring hope and healing to hurting people who may be suffering alone.

Objectives/Desired Outcomes:

  • Describe the grief experience after reproductive loss.
  • Identify three compassionate care practices to facilitate grieving for those impacted by reproductive loss.
  • Utilize new communication skills and healing resources.

Courageously Pro-Life

 

Have you ever been asked the question "What does it really mean to be pro-life?" How did you respond?

Join Sarah Bowen, author of Courageously Pro-Life and Director of Promise of Life Network, for a 12-week course, starting September 25, that will walk staff and volunteers through what it means to be pro-life. This training will not only cover the sanctity of human life from multiple perspectives using history and scripture but will equip staff and volunteers with practical knowledge of how this information applies to their work in a pregnancy help organization. You may learn things about the history of euthanasia, eugenics, and abortion that you never knew before.

Participants of the course will be asked to complete a weekly reading assignment from Courageously Pro-Life and view a weekly video lesson (30 minutes), as well as complete additional reading, and an online homework activity, and participate in a weekly online discussion forum. You will have the opportunity to check-in live with the instructor during the course, please mark your calendar for 10/3, 10/31, and 12/5 from 12 PM - 1 PM EST.

What others are saying: 

"There was so much research involved with writing this course, that it surprised me with a perspective at times that I had not heard before, and there are facts and history that I was not familiar with. I learned from the course and recommend it to other pregnancy centers - especially for newer staff."

"I absolutely loved gaining new info on the history of abortion/eugenics/euthanasia, and I think this is important for everyone regardless of how long they have been in pro-life work."

"I feel I have a better idea how to discuss Pro-Life issues with others and churches...Through this training I believe I am more knowledgeable to be able to speak to more people, I am so glad I took this class."

The next class begins on September 25!

*Participation in the live call for discussion is not required, but strongly encouraged.
