Roadshow In-Depth: Kids Grieve Too

November 15 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

 

Kids grieve too. Learn how to support children who are grieving the dying or death of someone they care about.

The dying and death of a significant person represents one of the most powerful disruptions in all aspects of a child or youth’s emotional existence. Yet few people receive formal training on how to support children and youth who are grieving the dying or death of someone they care about. This webinar will identify common barriers to supporting children and youth who are grieving as well highlight innovative and practical strategies that can be used in a variety of settings to help children and youth integrate the illness or death into their lives in a healthy way. It will include stories and important messages from children, youth and their families that illustrate “best practice” guidelines for supporting the wellbeing of children who are grieving.

Andrea Warnick is a Registered Nurse and Registered Psychotherapist whose passion lies in helping individuals, families and communities support people of all ages who are grieving an illness or death in their lives. With years of nursing and counselling experience both in Canada and abroad and a Masters degree in Thanatology (the study of dying and death) Andrea brings to her work a rare mixture of medical and psychosocial expertise. Andrea developed and teaches the 5 Day Certificate Program in Children’s Grief and Bereavement at SickKids Centre for Community Mental Health. She also is the host of KidsGrief Q&A, a free monthly forum through Canadian Virtual Hospice where she responds to questions from families and professionals about supporting grieving children and youth. Andrea lives in Guelph Ontario, from where she runs Andrea Warnick Consulting, a group practice of 25 therapists who provide grief counselling across Ontario and grief education across Canada.

This online workshop may be used for Continuing Education credits.
