Children, death, and dying seem like an incompatible combination, but in reality most children experience multiple deaths of family members and sometimes friends as they grow into adulthood. For caring adults, there are effective ways and helpful resources to explain death and dying to children and to support them in their grief and adjustment. In this presentation, we’ll discuss these issues, share helpful experiences and ideas from our practices, and provide helpful suggestions and information to better understand and support grieving children.
