How to Be a Grief Counselor

Islamic Banking and Finance

Grief is a powerful emotion that is usually associated with a devastating loss. It could be the death of a loved one or a pet or the loss of a job or property. Most of us have experienced grief at some point in our lives. It is a normal process that people go through as they try to deal with a painful experience. During the times when you were going through the grieving process, did you not wish for someone who could help you navigate through it? When you see a grieving individual, don’t you wish you were equipped to help the person better deal with the negative emotion?

Grief Counseling

You can embark on a career as a grief counselor by taking a grief counseling course. To be able to help someone go through the grieving process is a very special and useful skill.  Of course, most people recover from a painful loss even without the intervention of other individuals. But for some, letting go can be more difficult. And even if it seems like the person has recovered from the loss, it could affect him and his psyche for a long time. A grief counselor can help make the grieving process shorter and much easier to bear. The job of grief counselors is not to make people forget about the loss but to make them accept it and help them move on and live happier lives.

The American International Theism University (AITU) offers an accelerated program on grief counseling. After just one year, you can have a doctorate in grief counseling that will qualify you to teach in college or work in the public or private sector at higher managerial levels and have a fulfilling career. This program is accredited both by the education department of Florida and the Accreditation Service for International Schools, Colleges and Universities (ASIC).
