Developmental Stages & Children’s Responses To Grief

October 6, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Developmental Stages & Children’s Responses to Grief defines grief and explores how children process and express grief at different developmental stages. It offers insight into the unique experiences of grief and loss that children who have been separated from their biological family may experience. It also provides strategies to help children cope with emotional reactions to grief.

After completing this training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify stages of grief and how it is expressed in children.
  • Explain strategies that can be used to help children cope with emotional reactions to grief.
