Most people who have suffered the sudden loss of a loved one are haunted by the trauma of being notified. While there is no easy way to impart bad news, there are helpful techniques for delivering news that can be both beneficial to the survivor and messenger.

You will leave this seminar with a greater understanding of the needs of bereaved individuals and appreciate the complexities of your role as a notifier.

Sgt. Brooke Wilson comes to us from the Columbus Division of Police where he supervises the Accident Investigation Unit. He will be presenting the Death Notification Training on behalf of the Ohio State Office of Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
