Weaving Together Love and Loss: Supporting Grieving Children and Families
Wednesday, August 12, 2020
10:00 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. EDT
Presenter: Alexa Livelsberger, LCSW, Outreach and Education Coordinator; Child Grief Specialist Highmark Caring Place
We often misunderstand grief in children or mistakenly believe that children do not experience grief at all. Yet, anyone old enough to love is old enough to grieve. Young children experience and respond to grief in unique ways that are not always clear to adults and caregivers. This webinar will help you to better understand grief in children and learn how you can support both children and families experiencing loss.
Following the webinar participants will be able to:
- Describe the unique ways that children experience grief
- Recognize common grief responses in children
- Identify three ways to support grieving children and families
There is no cost to participate.
