Join Us for an Upcoming Training Workshop: Sept 5 - 7, 2014

While Share's primary purpose is to provide support to grieving parents at the time of and/or following the death of a baby, the secondary purpose is to provide information,
education and resources on the needs and rights of bereaved  parents and siblings. The objective is to aid those in the community in their supportive role. In order to meet this
objective, the National Share Office holds a training workshop twice each year to aid those who work with bereaved parents. This workshop is open to anyone who wants to start their own Share Group, hospital chaplains, social workers, counselors, nurses, and bereaved parents. The Sharing and Caring workshop is a weekend-long intensive training that gives anyone who works with the bereaved the tools they need to work with families effectively, run support groups, and gain the support of their hospital staff.
