About The Presentation
This presentation aims to provide information to the community on how to support the needs of grieving children. Topics covered include how grief presents throughout the different developmental stages of children; what to expect as typical developmental behavior vs. grief reactions; why intentional language is important in death and dying, and how and why to have conversations about true cause of death.
About the Presenter
As a member of the National Alliance for Grieving Children and a Community Pathfinders Provider through Judi’s House/JAG Institute, I have dedicated my career to supporting children impacted by a death-loss. Drawing from an integrated approach of play therapy, mindfulness, and attachment theory, I approach bereavement from a non-diagnostic model that supports grieving children in how to integrate the death of a significant person in their lives in a way that is healthy and meaningful.
