Helping Children Grieve | FREE 50 MINUTE VIDEO COURSE

Helping Children Grieve - a Course for Parents and Educators

"We bereaved are not alone. We belong to the largest company in the world- the company of those who have known suffering." (Helen Keller)

Our world is heavy with grief. It's a time of uncertainty and fear for many of our children who have lost a loved one. Over the past two years, my practice has gone from having one or two grieving patients at any given time to over fifty percent of children and teens who have experienced a significant loss.

When we are grieving ourselves, it's easy to be left not knowing how to best support our children and teens through these challenging times. This 50-minute course for parents and educators will provide practical tools to navigate the grief journey and understand a child's emotional space along the way.

The 'Helping Children Grieve' video course covers:

  • Is a child too young to grieve?

  • Normal emotions after the death of a loved one

  • Other physical and emotional signs of grieving

  • Who should tell the child about the death?

  • When should the child be told?

  • Where should they be told?

  • Should children be involved in memorial services?

  • When should children go back to school?

  • Does my child need grief counselling?

  • Steps to help children and teens through the grief journey

  • Grief experiences according to developmental ages

  • How can educators help?

  • Complex grief

  • Essential considerations for supporting grieving children

The course includes:

  • A 50 minute Video Course
  • A downloadable PDF on Understanding Grief According to Age.

An understanding and an awareness of the grief journey allows us to provide our children with the support they need to navigate the tremendous heartbreak of loss.

There are no magic keys or easy shortcuts in the grief process.

You can't take the pain of loss away from your children, but you can journey it alongside them, you can be their safe space, and you can let them know through your presence and the acknowledgment of their emotions that they are not alone.

Your child's healing lies in connection.
