Helping the Grieving Child

Children experience grief over the loss of their families when they come into foster care, similar yet more challenging, then they do through divorce or death. There are many unknowns within the complicated family dynamics of each situation. We can help them understand and heal through caring conversations, story-sharing, and creative projects like memory boxes or journaling.

Upon completion of this course, participants will:

 

  • Learn the stages of grief that are common to all situations regarding loss.
  • Discover why loss in foster care is more complex and if unresolved can lead to lifelong problems.
  • Obtain tools to utilize with children to help them address their grief in healthy ways.
