Villarreal attends bereavement skills training

Marcia Villarreal recently attended Comprehensive Bereavement Skills Training, completing 30 hours of classroom education by the internationally recognized Center for Loss and Life Transition in Fort Collins. This course is one of five required to earn the Death and Grief Studies Certificate.

The course was taught by Dr. Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph.D., a noted author, educator and grief counselor. The Center for Loss and Life Transition was founded in 1983 by Dr. Wolfelt. It is a private organization dedicated to furthering our understanding of grief.

Marcia Villarreal is the co-founder and executive director of One Moment (, a nonprofit organization which serves families in the Roaring Fork Valley and Western Slope who have suffered miscarriage, stillbirth or early infant loss. One Moment’s mission is to create support and provide peace and hope for those touched by pregnancy or early infant loss, to create a safe haven to grieve and to heal, and to educate and advocate awareness around the needs of mothers and families experiencing such a loss. One Moment hosts monthly support gatherings in Glenwood Springs and Eagle, and an annual Walk For Hope each September.
