Join us for a deeper dive into supporting children, parents, and caregivers when the serious illness or death of a family member or close relationship happens. We will highlight the impact of grief and loss for children and families during the pandemic and share strategies to deepen meaningful conversations in supporting grieving children.
Panelists will include Center staff members Janice Zurlo, York County Coordinator, Jamie Schwellenbach, Tender Living Care Program Coordinator, and Marie Sheffield, Intercultural Peer Support Training Specialist.
Goal: To provide a deeper understanding of the complexities of children’s losses within the context of their environment, and how to support them as they move through grief, loss, and change.
1. Participants will gain awareness around how the complexity of grief, loss, and change is related to a child’s environment and experiences during development.
2. Participants will be introduced to strategies for supporting children as they navigate grief relative to a death, an illness in the family, or collective loss.
