Children's Grief and Bereavement 101
It is estimated that 1 in 14 children will experience the death of a parent or sibling by the time they turn 18.
Although grief is a natural process experienced in many ways, it can be overwhelming to navigate at any age.
In this webinar, Registered Social Worker, Child and Youth Counsellor, and Grief Education Program Facilitator Jodi Gorham will explore definitions of and reactions to grief, and share insights into practical approaches for supporting grieving youth.
Whether you are a parent, caregiver, educator or other human service provider, we invite you to connect with us for a conversation about children’s grief and bereavement.
