Grief Networking Alliance
Denver, Colorado

The mission of the Grief Networking Alliance is to establish a network of lay and professional service providers who share information and resources with individuals, families and communities living with grief.

What is GNA?

GNA is a true networking group, started by grief care professionals in the greater Denver Metro area. The goal of GNA is to create a collaborative platform for professionals to connect, build and establish trusting relationships, share expertise, and collectively provide essential support to each other and the broader community, ultimately fostering a more compassionate and comprehensive approach to grief and end-of-life care.  

Upcoming Meetings:

We typically meet about once a quarter. We primarily meet in-person at locations around the greater Denver Metro area, and welcome grief care providers in other areas to join us for virtual meetings when we have them.

Starting in January, 2024 we will begin a monthly virtual Consultation Group for grief care providers. This will be a time to connect, discuss cases and get feedback from each other about ways to help navigate tough situations, get ideas for approaches to try or additional resources to connect with. This consultation group will plan to meet on the second Tuesday monthly at 3pm (MST). We invite any grief care provider who is working directly with bereaved individuals to attend. Please email GNA to be added to the email list to join the group and receive the link to join.

Upcoming Special Events for Grief Care Providers:

PAUSE Panel & Alica Forneret

 

Grief in the Workplace

Examining identity, support needs, and community in culturally-relevant ways in the workplace

A special presentation for Hospice Professionals, Clergy, Law Enforcement, First Responders, Victim’s Advocates, Therapists/Counselors, Volunteers, Companions, Death Doulas, Death Care Professionals, including Administrative and Leadership Professionals in these settings.

In this presentation for professionals, PAUSE will cover how workplaces can better support their employees who are People of Color navigating death, dying, and grief. Together, we will explore how race and culture can influence the type of support workplaces can offer to their employees. Attendees should be prepared to engage in individual exercises to examine their own identity and how it’s impacted their personal grief experience in the workplace, as well as small group work and large group discussions to center storytelling and resourcing from community. Attendees will walk away with practical ideas for expanding their approach to making culturally-relevant referrals outside of the typical bereavement response, as well as a customized list of grief and end-of-life resources by and for People of Color.

Registration Required. Certificate of Completion provided upon request to professionals in attendance.  

How Who We Are Impacts How We Grieve

A panel discussion exploring the intersection of grief and identity

In this 1.5-hour panel discussion, attendees will meet Charlene Lam (The Grief Gallery), Dr. Julie Shaw (Hello I’m Grieving), and Mangda Sengvanhpheng (BACII) – three grief-focused professionals who bring unique approaches to their work serving grieving folks. In this conversation, they’ll share about their individual journeys, discuss the connections between culture, identity, and creativity, and talk about why it can be important to look outside of traditional grief support containers to receive more expansive and holistic care. Our time together will include a Q&A with the panelists.

 

Join us August 20th!
