Grief in Children
One of the challenging aspects of working with bereaved children is how different grief in children and adolescents looks from adult grief. We will discuss the hallmarks of grief in children, the grief experience through the lens of child development, and tools for supporting bereaved youth. Additionally, we will review how to identify the difference between typical grief experiences in children and those that may signal a need for further evaluation or support.
