Has your child recently experienced the loss of a loved one or a pet? Are they experiencing the separation of their parents? Are they struggling with a loss of trust, safety or faith? Are they struggling with the multitude of losses related to COVID? Regardless of the type of loss, watching your child grieve can be one of the most profoundly difficult experiences for caregivers.
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 feelings include unconventional losses related to unique situations like COVID-19. 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 workshop 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.
