NAGC Standards of Practice
The National Alliance for Grieving Children established Standards of Practice which provide professional practice standards for organizations or individuals offering bereavement support services or counseling to children or teenagers grieving a death. The Standards were written by professionals throughout the childhood bereavement field, and reflect the values and practices of a variety of support models.
In August 2014, The Mourning Hope Grief Center’s Board of Directors voted to adopt these Standards of Practice and Mourning Hope’s Board and Staff agree to abide by these Standards.
