Learning Grief: Helping Kids Navigate the Big Feelings that Come with Loss

Collage of various adults having one on one conversations with a young person.

Wednesday, May 22, from 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. (Eastern)

In an ideal world, kids and teens would be spared from having to confront grief. But the reality is that loss is an inescapable part of life. By normalizing the big feelings that come with loss and teaching kids how to support their peers through tough times, you can have a major impact on the young people in your life.

Whether you’re a mentor, coach, youth leader, educator, or caregiver, or hold one of the many other important roles that puts you in a position of influence with a child or teen, you have the power to facilitate lasting change in the next generation.

In this webinar, experts will:

  • discuss how death and non-death losses can impact kids
  • explore differences between child grief and adult grief
  • describe how you can coach and model healthy coping and relational skills
  • share strategies for how you can guide the young people in your life to offer meaningful support to their peers

You’ll also be among the first people to see Learning Grief, a free online resource created to help you support kids and teens navigate the big feelings that come with loss.
