GC 820 - Supporting Children and Family during Grief and Traumatic Loss

(1.00 cr.)

The special aspects of children's grief are addressed: how it impacts a family system; how family dynamics shape grief; common feelings and behaviors expressed by grieving children; and interventions and methods to support growth through grief. Participants explore the impact on a student's academic, behavioral, and social well-being, as well as how to assist the student with the school environment. Sensitive issues related to understanding and managing a suicide-loss in the school community are also addressed. A combination of lecture, videos, and interactive exercises are used.
