Grief looks different in a child.
When a child loses someone, it’s a lifelong loss. Not only have they lost someone important, they often become isolated in their pain, confusion, and self-blame. Safety and security have been replaced by trauma and anxiety.
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.
Many clinicians are unprepared…a child’s unique grief leaving them struggling in session.
This live webinar featuring grief expert, author, and speaker Erica H. Sirrine, Ph.D., LCSW, FT provides you with the assessment and treatment strategies you need to help your most vulnerable clients.
Watch Dr. Sirrine and discover how you can:
- Better evaluate for developmentally appropriate grief symptomology
- Provide anticipatory grief support to children facing the death of a parent
- Talk to kids about death and tough topics like suicide
- Match strategies and interventions to developmental level for improved outcomes
- Use therapeutic games, arts and activities to promote healing when talking is too difficult
