Wait, My Grief Has a Shape? | Webinar

Wednesday, 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm Free

Join Highmark Caring Place on August 5 for their webinar, “Wait, My Grief Has a Shape? Understanding the Loss Experience for Our Children and Ourselves.”


Grief is often experienced not as a set of linear stages, but as a spiral where emotions come and go in intensity. In their webinar, Highmark Caring Place will discuss the spiral shape of grief and explain the differences in these spirals between adults and children. In understanding our grief experiences, and those of our children, we are better able to manage our own grief and support others in their grief journeys.

Learning Objectives

By attending, participants will be able to:

    • recognize the distinctions between various models of grief,
    • identify common grief responses, and
    • discuss the differences in grief between adults and children.


To register, visit the event webpage. Registrations must be submitted no later than Tuesday, August 4.
