*Recording*October 3rd, Helping Grieving Families through Ritual and Continuing Bonds- Recording

Presenter(s):
Description:

In 1996, Klass, Silverman, and Nickman shed light on an important bereavement concept in the book Continuing Bonds: New Understandings of Grief. Their work questioning linear models of grief that are supposed to lead to things like acceptance, detachment, and new life suggested a paradigm in which it is normal for the bereaved to continue their bond with the deceased. This webinar will review the theory and research surround children’s normal grief reactions and grief/re-grief across developmental stages. It will offer practical tools for applying continuing bonds theory to both direct work with children, as well working with families to lay a foundation and framework for coping with grief as a family unit in the coming months and years.
