Description

Live webinar


Many children in military families were young when their parent died and their questions and understanding about death and loss will change as they grow. This program will help parents and caregivers understand how children’s conceptualization of death, grief, and loss develops as they transition through their childhood and provide guidance and reassurance for responding to the new questions and feelings that will undoubtedly emerge.
