The Art of Presence


This workshop teaches the important art of presence as it pertains to the supportive role one plays towards friends and family after a loss. The four rules that make up the art of presence, the SOLAR method of listening and the framework for being present to someone who is grieving are all discussed at length.






At Olivia's House: A Grief and Loss Center for Children, we employ a Bereavement Specialist who holds over 25 years of experience in the field of grief and loss. As one of the premier centers in the nation, we are proud to provide professional trainings surrounding the most cutting edge topics of current education and research. We travel nationally for trainings or you can also learn on-site at Olivia's House.

In this section, you will find a list of frequently requested topics for professional trainings. Often, topics are combined based on the needs of the organization. All trainings are customized for the particular needs of the audience.

For more information on Professional Trainings, email our Bereavement Specialist or call 717-699-1133. The cost of professional training is based loosely on a scale of $150/hour plus travel expenses.

Please note, there is a major difference between professional trainings and our education support (supporting a school or business after the death of a student or employee), provided at no cost.
