Helping Children Through Grief and Loss (Annual Conference)

$50.00

Grief is a normal and natural reaction to a loss in an individual’s life however, even though we all experience it, we are often left struggling or feeling isolated and confused when we grieve. These same feelings can apply to our children. Adults and children alike will be told to “wait for time to heal” or “move on” and “be strong”. While usually well-meaning, these responses do not recognize the pain we actually carry after a loss. Fortunately, there are steps that caregivers can take to recognize the emotional incompleteness that a child carries and to help them heal their hearts. This session will provide you with a set of skills and a new sense of empowerment that will allow you to better recognize grief within your child and help them move towards recovery after a loss.

Are they struggling with a loss of trust, safety or faith? Regardless of the type of loss, watching your child grieve can be one of the most profoundly difficult experiences for caregivers.
