Event description

Description

An estimated 1 out of 15 children in the United States will experience a parent or sibling death before they reach the age of 18, according to the recently released Childhood Bereavement Estimation Model (CBEM). That means about one child in every classroom is grieving, but many school and counseling professionals do not know how to help a grieving child.
According to the CBEM, "Childhood bereavement is a public health issue that has long been overlooked. The death of a parent or other important person in a child’s life has been noted to be one of the most commonly reported and disruptive Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). Yet, a lack of understanding of the prevalence and impact of experiencing such a death as a child has led to neglect in addressing the issue."

In this presentation, we will discuss a child's grief journey and how we can assist grieving children in a school setting with practical activities, tools and resources.
