Introducing the Certified Bereavement Practitioner Program
The Certified Bereavement Practitioner (CBP) Program is a new Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement initiative designed to ensure that bereavement practitioners who have undertaken specialised training are given due recognition.
Certification provides a high level of assurance to the community, employers, clients and professional associates of the credentials and peer recognition of a bereavement practitioner. By certifying practitioners who meet high standards of professionalism and ethical conduct, the program assists in improving bereavement practice and clinical outcomes.
The CBP Program is open to all practitioners who can meet the requisite competency criteria of training, experience, professional conduct and ethical behaviour. The Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement will list the name and contact details within a searchable referral database of certified practitioners on our website and Certified Practitioners will also have access to unique networking and professional development opportunities designed specifically to meet their needs.
