What to Expect

Parenting is a difficult and exhausting, and never is this more true than when parents are grieving. How can parents be expected to respond effectively to the needs of their children when they themselves are running on empty?

This workshop is for you if you are a counselor, family therapist, or social worker who works with grieving parents in any clinical capacity. In this course, we will:

Objective 1

List the life transitions & stressors that cause parental grief, paying special attention to the loss of a loved one and how bereavement impacts parenting

Objective 2

Apply a clinical understanding of grief to the tasks of parenting, identifying barriers that complicate and interfere with parenting skills

Objective 3

Identify intentional strategies parents can use to show up for their children (and themselves) after loss
