NE Oklahoma Spring Conference on Grieving Youth
9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Youth are often referred to as the “forgotten mourners.” Myths about grief and a young child’s understanding of death prevents us from fully embracing the fullness of the impact a significant loss can have on a child. Join us as we explore the developmental and familial factors that play a role when a child or teen grieves and learn expressive arts and directive play therapy activities appropriate for for use in individual and group counseling.
- Understand how children and adolescents react to loss from a developmental perspective
- Explore the impact of childhood grief on later life.
- Explore the impact of sibling loss and death by suicide
- Learn 4 easy and affordable memorialization activities to use with children and adolescents
- Discover books and online resources that can assist a grieving child or adolescent
(This workshop replaces Grief isn't child's play, or is it? and Engaging Teens & Tweens in the Grief Process. Some material will will be the same.)
