About the Event

THIS 2-DAY TRAINING WILL BE ON 

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2024  FROM 9AM-3PM

And on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 2024 FROM 9AM-3PM

LUNCH on both days is included in registration donation fee

Participants can include:

  • Those who want to become a certified Sibshop facilitator
  • Let Grace In keiki volunteers, adult grieving siblings, grieving parents, family members, service providers, and other community members who wish to learn more about how to support grieving siblings

Primary goal: To train new Sibshop facilitators and administrators; adult grieving siblings, grief service providers, parents and others want to learn how to run a local Sibshop.

During the two days of the Sibshop training, you will:

  • Learn about siblings’ life-long concerns
  • Find out how to organize a local Sibshop
  • Experience what a Sibshop is all about as local bereaved siblings join us for a four-hour Demonstration Sibshop.

Trainees must attend both days of the Sibshop training. Upon completion of the two-day training, you are considered a Certified “first-generation” Sibshop facilitator and may (upon registration) start your own local Sibshop.

Secondary goal: To educate parents, adult siblings, service providers, and others about siblings’ ever-changing issues across the lifespan. 

This is an in-person training.

Sibshop facilitators should share some varied core skills. It is desired that Sibshop facilitators:

  •  Have a working knowledge of the unique concerns experienced by grieving siblings.
  • Have personal or professional experience with people who are grieving and with their families.
  • Be familiar with active listening principles.
  • Have experience leading groups, preferably groups of children.
  • Convey a sense of joy, wonder and play.
  • Be somewhat physically fit.
  • Appreciate that the Sibshop participants, not the facilitators, are the experts on grieving a brother or sister..
