The Grief Recovery Institute® was founded in the early 1980s in Southern California. We soon started holding more and more Certification Trainings across the country. By 2008 we were scheduling thirty plus trainings a year, coast to coast. Since then, we have expanded internationally to Canada, Sweden,  the United Kingdom, and most recently Mexico. Please contact any of our affiliates outside the United States for information and schedules regarding training to become a Grief Recovery Specialist®.
