General discomfort addressing and supporting death, grief, and trauma coupled with societal pressures to “get over” or fix an inalterable situation, can often leave grieving individuals feeling isolated and mired in their grief. Children face additional challenges integrating losses into their lives related to developmental influences and a limited repertoire of coping tools often coupled with social stigmas.
We will illuminate common (sometimes challenging) responses to loss and grief myths, identify unique considerations following suicide and traumatic loss, and outline helpful caregiver responses and interventions when supporting an individual after a loss by suicide or traumatic loss.
- Identify differences between grief responses for youth and adults.
- Identify unique considerations of grief following a death by suicide or traumatic loss.
- Illuminate developmental influences on grief responses.
- Discuss grief styles and strategies for supporting four different styles.
- Outline two models of trauma care.
- Identify helpful caregiver responses/interventions including practical language and experiential tools.
