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.
