In the past year families have been confronted with death on a scale not witnessed in generations.
And children are often impacted most intensely following the loss of an immediate or extended family member. Trauma, pain and confusion replacing safety and security.
But their understanding of death, and responses to the grief that follows, are largely influenced by their developmental level, making their treatment much different from that of an adult.
Join Dr. Erica Sirrine for this powerful session so you can better understand the unique nature of grief in children and adolescents and get developmentally appropriate treatment strategies to help these vulnerable clients find hope and healing!
