Grief Consultation for Families
When you and your family are struggling with a recent loss or serious illness of a family member, you may only need some information to assist you. I can provide education and resources about how children, teens and adults grieve differently, some guidance about what you should tell your children, how to talk to them about the situation, and what you can do to open up communication of feelings and thoughts. This knowledge can help you feel more prepared to cope with the situation and to help your children. I can offer:
- Information about the grief process at different ages
- Books and articles for adults, teens and children
- What helps grieving children, teens and adults
- Helpful activities to do with children and teens
Grief Education & Training
We all struggle with knowing what to say or do to help someone who has experienced loss through death or serious illness. Whether you are a health professional, volunteer or any other individual or agency desiring to enhance grief and bereavement knowledge and practice, I offer educational presentations or workshops of varying lengths and topics that meet your specific needs.
Workshops, presentations and training I have given include the following:
- Growth Through Grief—The Grief Experience in Adults
- Helping Children Cope When a Family Member is Dying
- Understanding How Children Grieve and What Helps Them
- Understanding the Experience of Suicide Loss
- Moving Forward After the Loss of A Life Partner—Cultivating Resiliency
- Communication Skills for Grief Support Volunteers
- Grief Support Group Volunteer Facilitator Training
I would welcome the opportunity to work with you or your organization. Please call or email me to discuss the possibilities.
Together, we can build on individual strengths, facilitate resilience and renew hope.
