Understanding and Supporting the Process of Grief and Loss in Children, Youth and Ourselves
Being separated from loved ones and being torn from home and everything familiar is devastating for children and youth. The resulting experiences of loss and grief are profound and lasting. Because children have no choices in this experience, the impact for them is more severe than that for the adults in similar events. The pursuing grief forever shapes the internal working model and resultant behaviors for the child. Our role as caretakers and providers will be to help the child process, cope and eventually integrate the overwhelming and persistent feelings they are struggling with. The training also addresses the grief that surfaces for us as we help the youth along this painful journey.
