Traumatic Grief and At-Risk Youth

When the sudden and traumatic death of a significant caregiver or close family member occurs, the youth is often left without the support and tools that they need to help them start their mourning process. Children and youth who have experienced the death of a caregiver or close family member often need to acknowledge and begin to understand all the feelings associated with the death particularly if the death is stigmatized or a crime was involved. In this workshop you will examine the multiple factors that impact a youth’s grief and how their community of caregivers (foster parents, social worker/therapist, teachers and relatives) can assist in the grieving process through the Four Tasks of Mourning as described by JW Worden, PhD.
