About this Course

1.5 million youth in the U.S. are grieving the loss of a parent or significant person in their lives. As we continue to experience communal, and personal associations to the pandemic, these losses will continue to grow and change our communities. The times call for professionals to respond to their own loss histories, and to make room for more concrete, intentional responses to client and community needs. As professionals, it is important to understand the dynamics of this unique experience so that we can offer support that is relevant, culturally aware, and sensitive to individual, and community grief needs. This fun, (yes, fun!) and experiential digital session will offer a new lens to view work with underserved populations. Content to include activities, focus on cultivating peer support, inclusive and resonant facilitation skill building and family based-, group and individual processing considerations.
