Grief & Loss Counsellor

Closing Date: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

The Grief and Loss Counsellor is responsible for attending to the needs of CUMFI clients and staff (Supported Living Homes and CUMFI Outreach). Contemporary losses in Aboriginal communities may often produce high risk bereavement with adverse outcomes. There may also be an increased vulnerability associated with past unresolved losses which may have transgenerational effects. Knowledge of, and sensitivity to, cultural practices to deal with death and grief are essential. This may include crisis and ongoing counseling, assistance to connect with other community and professional resources, and plan appropriate ways to build on strengths and possible therapies to address specific needs.
