This workshop will explore the impact of death on children and teens; help parents to develop tools to support children and teens to talk openly about their feelings; support parents to develop coping strategies as they live with their own grief, while supporting a child or teen in their care. Supporting carers to engage with the ‘big feelings’ that can arise around grief rather than fear them. The interactive workshop will be a safe space for parents to listen, be heard and explore and feel their way through their own grief so they can feel more able to support their children at this time.
