Lunch & Learn
OCT 2023 For WEBSITE (1)

Led by Liz Danielson, founder and Executive Director of Spiritual Care Support Ministries

An estimated 6 million children in the United States will experience the death of a parent or sibling by age 18. According to feedback from coalition partners, this is an issue for many children of families in our community who are seeking resources and support. This event will address the need for children to be heard when they are grieving, the difference between grief and mourning for children, what ways professionals and parents can give support to a grieving child, as well as self-care amidst our collective post-pandemic stress syndrome.
