King's University College has had an effective Death Education Program since 1976. More than 4,000 students have taken our university courses in Death and Bereavement. A certificate program in Grief and Bereavement Studies was started in 1994, most of the courses are now available by distance (e-mail) education.
In addition to our nineteen international conferences on Death, Dying and Bereavement, we have hosted the annual meetings of the International Work Group on Death, Dying and Bereavement (1986 and 1994) as well as that of the Association for Death Education and Counseling (1987) Audiotapes and videotapes from these conferences are available.
In cooperation with the University of Western Ontario, Centre for Continuing Studies, we have developed a Certificate Program in Grief and Bereavement Studies. There are fewer than 10 such programs in North America.
