Parenting While Grieving
Tools and Strategies that Help Families Cope with Loss
We offer an educational series called Parenting While Grieving to parents and/or caregivers who are parenting children and teens who have had a parent die.
The way in which the surviving parent or caregiver is coping with the loss will help determine how well a child will cope over time.
In this eight-week, evidence-based series, we will explore:
- the impact of death and loss on children
- developmental understanding of the grief process
- strategies for managing the challenges of parenting
- and for some, parenting while navigating their own grief
We will practice the essential parenting skills of listening, expressing, problem-solving, and setting limits within the context of a grieving family.
There is no cost to this series, but space is limited. We expect a commitment to all eight sessions. Each week’s theme is integral to the next week’s theme.
