Supporting the Voices of Grieving Children

Thursday, 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm Free

Join the Highmark Caring Place on November 19 for their webinar “Can You Hear Us Now? Supporting the Voices of Grieving Children” to learn about unique grief responses seen in children, ways to practice self-care, and opportunities to elevate the voices of grieving children.

About

Children’s Grief Awareness Day provides an opportunity for all to raise awareness of the painful impact that the death of a loved one has in the life of a child, and an opportunity to make sure that these children receive the support they need. It’s a day on which often-unnoticed kids can become heard for a change. A day when all of us can take the time to realize how much it can help grieving children for them to get support.

In this webinar, presenters will work to educate the community about children who are grieving, equip peers and adults to become companions for grieving children, and honor the children and their loved ones who have died.

Featured Topics

During the webinar, participants will:

    • learn about the background and vision of Children’s Grief Awareness Day;
    • gain knowledge of the unique grief responses seen in children;
    • understand the ways that encountering grief and offering support can be challenging, and explore ways of practicing self-care; and
    • identify one to two ways they can elevate the voices of grieving children by raising awareness in their own school, community, or place of work throughout the year.
