Grief and Loss: Skills for Helping Youth (3HR)

Grief and death have many facets when observed in children and youth whether through unexpected death, incarceration, foster care placement, etc. For this population, these difficult moments can be voluminous. How and when do we talk about the sudden death or terminal diagnoses of their loved ones? Are there key psychosocial factors related to grieving? Expound on the definitions of grief, death, bereavement, and mourning. Explore the various developmental differences and responses considered “normal” versus complicated grief.

  • Gain an understanding of how children and youth grieve
