Portland Institute for Loss and Transition

Looking for serious professional training in

grief counseling and bereavement support?

​The Portland Institute and its Director, Robert A. Neimeyer, PhD,
have now launched just the training program you are looking for.

 Loss and grief are a part of life,

but ironically they are not a part of postgraduate training

for most students and practitioners in the mental health professions.  


Now the Portland Institute for Loss and Transition is offering

both onsite and online training in grief counseling and therapy

leading toward Certification in Grief Therapy as Meaning Reconstruction,

followed by different specialty tracks.  


See the top menu bar for more information about our training program,

and join our global learning community to pursue certification.
