Virtually all children experience the death of a friend of family member at some point in their childhood.  Even though bereavement is a normative experience, a significant loss can have a significant impact on children’s psychological adjustment, academic achievement, and personal development.  This presentation will provide insight into how children come to understand and adjust to a loss and practical suggestions on how adults can talk with children and provide needed support.  The free resources developed by the Coalition to Support Grieving Students (of which ASHA is a Supporting Organizational Member) will be highlighted. There’s limited seats so register today!

At the end of this webinar, learners will be able to:

  • Review and construct conversation options with children and their families related to deaths of family members and friends
  • Explain the role of guilt in impacting adjustment to a loss
  • Review advice on grief related issues such as funeral attendance of children
  • Support the importance of long-term follow-up after a significant loss
  • Review freely available professional development resources on bereavement support
