Engaging Teens and Tweens in the Grief Process
August 26, 2016 9:00 a.m. -12:00 p.m.
Teens in today's world are exposed to loss in many different ways. They learn about death through music lyrics, video games and the media and may even seem callous to the idea. When death hits close to home, a teenager's world is forever altered. Bereavement coupled with the upheaval of youth has been described as "double jeorpardy" and the fluctuation between child and adult roles can further complicate grief. Join us as we explore the complexity of teen grief and the therapeutic techinques that can allow a teen to engage in the grief process.
1. Describe developmental considerations of teens related to the grief journey, as well as, experiences common to grieving teens.
2. Provide a model of grief support that can be used with teens in individual or group settings.
3. Learn five developmentally appropriate clinical activities that can be used to support teens and tweens in an individual or group setting.
