Imagine’s “Supporting Children Coping with Loss” is for anyone who wants to learn how to support a child who is grieving. While loss due to death will be the primary focus of this seminar, the concepts that will be presented are applicable to all types of loss. Children and teens can learn how to cope with loss, and even grow after loss, if given the right support. How can we best support grieving children in their homes, communities, and schools? Those who attend this training will learn definitions of loss, grief, and mourning; how children and adults grieve differently; how grief affects behavior; and ways to support grieving children and teens.
It is especially important for parents and grandparents, teachers, members of community organizations, coaches, therapists, counselors, and social workers to attend this program. CEUs are available for social workers.
The webinar will be presented by Veronica C. Ortiz, LPC, Imagine Training and Education Director, Connie Palmer, LCSW, Grief Educator, with special guest Fatimah Burnam-Watkins, Senior Vice President of the Office of Transformation and Change at Teach for America.
