Event description


Live webinar

Bereaved children and teenagers all cope with the death of a loved one differently, based in part on their ages and developmental levels. While most children and teens don't require professional support, all young people will need help in successfully adjusting to loss.

Dr. Reid will share practical tips to help parents and other caregivers understand and support their school-aged children and teenagers through grief, with particular attention to the unique aspects of the adolescent years that create additional challenges to successful coping with the death of parent. Dr. Reid will also discuss indicators for determining when professional support may be needed.
