Grieving and Healing from the Losses of Life

There are so many misconceptions about grief and loss.

The Impact Of Loss And Change On Children

(parents, guardians, educators, school counselors, children’s leaders)

To watch a child grieve and not know what to do is a profoundly difficult experience for parents, teachers, and caregivers. Yet, there are guidelines for helping children develop a lifelong, healthy response to loss. This workshop will introduce concepts to free children from the false idea of “not feeling bad” and to empower them with positive, effective methods of dealing with loss.

 There are many life experiences that can produce feelings of grief in a child, from the death of a relative or a divorce in the family to more everyday experiences such as moving to a new neighborhood or losing a prized possession. No matter the reason or degree of severity, if a child you love is grieving, the guidelines examined here can make a difference.
