The human experience of grief is always a difficult one yet additional challenge comes with navigating grief in a society that struggles with both emotional expression and mortality. In addition, living through a pandemic has provided an abundance of losses, many of which are unacknowledged, which can further complicate and compound a child’s experience of grief.
While grief is an often-misunderstood process, at its core it is an extremely healthy one and one that can be integrated into a child’s life in a way that allows for it to co-exist with growth and joy. This day-long workshop will go a long way towards enhancing the grief literacy of participants by weaving together strategies for supporting grieving children and families and provide opportunities to process our own experience of the past three years. Current literature on the topic will be touched on and practical strategies that can be used in a variety of settings for supporting young people who are grieving will be shared. Important messages from children and their families that illustrate “best practice” guidelines will be woven throughout.
