Bringing together a community of grief and bereavement specialists to connect, educate and empower.
Bereavement and loss in the life of an adolescent is seen as off time and demands the reorganization of their assumptive world and how they view themselves, others and life. It evokes grief responses which can be intense. The most frequent deaths adolescents experience are those of parents, siblings or peers. The responses to their loss will depend on their age, the nature of the death, their relationship with the deceased, their personalities, how the family grieves and the changes the death creates in the family. This workshop will examine the factors that influence an adolescent while grieving, explore the impact of various types of loss on the adolescent, discuss the various styles of intervention that might help engage the bereaved adolescent in processing their loss and examine programs that might be used with bereaved adolescents. The workshop will combine theory with experiential work and will allow for discussion of the difficulties which arise while engaging adolescents with their grief
