HELPING CHILDREN/TEENS WITH LOSS & GRIEF
Dealing with Grief in your Grandkids Life
Facilitator: Joy Gaertner, Certified Grief Recovery Specialist
Well-meaning adults often try to comfort grieving children/teens by saying things like
- Don’t cry, he wouldn’t want you to be sad.
- We’ll just get you a new dog/cat/stuffed animal.
- Don’t worry, I’m sure she’ll get better soon.
- It could always be worse.
- Don’t be scared, it will be fine.
Unfortunately, these well-intentioned statements often make the problem worse. The child may stop crying to please you, but in turn, receives the message that it’s not okay to grieve. Imagine knowing the right words and actions to take when a child is grieving a loss! You can learn tools that will not only help your grandchildren today but for the rest of their lives as well.
In this webinar Joy Gaertner, Advanced Loss & Grief Recovery Specialist, will provide tools for helping a child of any age and/or ability level move beyond the pain caused by death, divorce, bullying, disappointment & change. Equip your grandchildren so they can cope with any type of heartbreak. They, then, can pass this legacy of healing and freedom from pain on to their children and grandchildren.
