Fostering Resilience in Children Coping with Loss

ID: 5275

One in three children is grieving a loss due to death, divorce, abandonment, foster care, illness, incarceration, or deportation, leaving them at higher risk for suicide, substance abuse, and aggressive behavior. Learning how to support grieving children enables them to live emotionally healthy, meaningful and productive lives. This workshop provides an understanding of the impact of loss on children and youth. Attendees will learn the definitions and interrelatedness of loss, grief and mourning. The dominant culture encourages children to win and succeed, but doesn’t teach them how to lose. This essential life skill is learned when social workers and other professionals provide support to grieving children. While this workshop will focus primarily on how to help children cope with loss due to death, these concepts are transferable to all types of loss
