Date: Thursday, March 23, 2017
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM MDT
Virtually all children experience the death of a friend or 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.
