Ways to Talk to Children about Grief 

Grief is the intense emotional reaction and distress in response to loss, usually associated with death.

However, grief encompass significantly more experiences than just death – separation or the ending of a close relationship, can also bring about elements of grief. A very natural process, and often a significant part of processing and moving beyond the pain and suffering to create new direction and a shift in daily life.

Grief, however, often brings many uncomfortable emotions which most of us find difficult to experience and express. The thought of having to explain grief to a child, can leave us feeling uncertain as to how to approach the subject and ways to do so in a sensitive manner to avoid causing unnecessary distress for the child.

Take this workshop to learn how to address grief with children and ways to help them cope.
