Support for grieving children and families
Join us on November 4 at Alive’s Grief Center for a FREE live stream viewing of the National Alliance for Children’s Grief (NACG) Fall Conference: Supporting Children & Families Following a Stigmatized Death. This event is valued at $250 but is free of charge and open to anyone in the community. Continuing Education Credits for mental health providers (LPC’s, LMFT’s, and Social Workers) are available for $45.00 (payable on-site at the event).
Grief is a natural response to a death, but when the death is by homicide, suicide, or overdose, the stigma associated with them can complicate the grief experience for the griever. As a result, stigmatized deaths create important considerations when supporting children and families. Our speakers, Diane Vines (MA, LMFT-S, LPM-S, RPT-S) and Tina Barrett (EdD, LCPC), will explore ways we can stabilize and strengthen those grieving a suicide or homicide death as they integrate their losses into their lives.
