Grief in Transition Aged Youth

When: Wednesday, April 13 - 1:00 PM

Duration: 1 hours

Location: Zoom

Event Details:

According to Psychology Today, grief is the acute pain that accompanies loss.  We may also think about grief as a process that we participate in when experiencing a loss of any kind. Grief is often overlooked in transition aged youth. Due to the frequency and intensity of change that transition aged youth experience, grief work is an important part of supporting these clients. 

This webinar provides an overview of working with grief in transition aged youth. To begin, we look at different definitions of grief and examine how they offer a framework for grief work. We define the types of grief transition aged youth may experience and identify examples of each. We delineate how working with grief in transition aged youth is different than in children and adults. To conclude, we discuss 3 interventions that can be implemented when supporting transition aged youth through grief.
