Children and Adolescents

Program Details
Living With Grief: Children and Adolescents will focus on the experience of grieving children and adolescents and the ways that all hospice professionals, educators and counselors, parents, social workers, physicians, grief counselors, funeral directors, and clergy can best support these populations as they cope with loss and grief. The program and accompanying book written by child and adolescent grief experts will examine the newest theories and practices, and as always, will combine academic research with hands-on ideas for use in hospice support groups and other settings.
