Event description

Description

· Understand how children grieve differently from adults.

· Learn to recognize some of the common pitfalls to which bereaved youth are vulnerable, i.e. physical ailments, substance abuse, depression, increased tardiness and absences, poor school performance, anxiety disorders.

· Identify some of the key differences between bereaved youth at different developmental stages. Distinguish between elementary, middle, and high school-aged students, to create effective classroom strategies that are age appropriate.

· Discuss how our typical cultural responses to grief (i.e. fear of explicitly discussing the death and obscuring the facts with euphemisms, offering platitudes, ignoring the death) may hinder the student’s grief journey.

· Learn how to replace typical responses with more helpful ones and how to offer compassionate companionship.

· Explore ideas to support bereaved parents and caregivers so they may better understand and support their grieving student at home.

· CEUs will be provided for those who request them.
