Training and Education
Judis' House/JAG Institute provides community grief education for thousands of individuals annually in schools, nonprofit organizations, health care settings, faith-based organizations, and universities, while simultaneously offering intensive training for graduate students and early career professionals in the behavioral health field. Our staff of grief-minded and trauma-informed experts provides high quality training that incorporates timely research and best practice standards so more grieving youth and families may receive the support they need.
We believe that no child should be alone in grief. To realize that vision requires collaboration and focused efforts that mobilize and equip communities with the tools and resources needed to provide effective and sustainable grief care. We are dedicated to sharing the research- and practice-based knowledge we have acquired and refined over a 15-year history through accessible training and education programming. Together, we can support diverse populations of bereaved individuals, strengthening our communities, and creating a grief-sensitive culture.
Judi’s House/JAG Institute is proud to be an approved internship and practicum site for many universities’ clinical training programs. Each year, we provide intensive training to approximately twelve mental health trainees who are working on their advanced degrees. Our trainees provide more than 12,000 hours of service to support grieving children and families in our community annually.
Our application process is currently closed.
The next application period will open in early 2019 for selection of the fall 2019 intern class.
