Event description

Description

Youth are often referred to as the “forgotten mourners.” Myths about grief, coupled with a lack of understand about who a young person understands death can make it difficult to navigate grief successfully in the clinical setting. Join us as we explore developmental and familial factors that are at play when a child or teen grieves. Participants will learn expressive arts and directive play therapy activities appropriate for for use in the individual and group counseling settings.

4.5 Hours of Continuing Education

Objectives:

  • Understand how children and adolescents react to loss from a developmental perspective.

  • Explore the impact of early loss on adulthood

  • Understand the complexity of traumatic loss (suicide, homicide)

  • Learn over 5 easy and affordable therapeutic interventions to use with children and adolescents

  • Discover new resources that can assist grieving youth
