IMAGINE IS A CENTER FOR COPING WITH LOSS

Upcoming Community Webinar:

Supporting Children Coping with Loss

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.

Supporting Children Coping with Loss

The webinar will be presented by Ashley S. Allen, Newark Training and Education Associate.
