Description

*All Participants should RSVP Separately.

There is not Pre Test for this Training.

Whether you are a foster or adoptive family, the children in your care face grief. Grief is a natural reaction to loss. Children and teens’ grief looks different from that of adults and as adults you may not recognize grief reactions in your children. You may feel at a loss on how best to support your children. Join us to learn about developmental reactions to loss, what affects a child’s reaction to loss, and how you can support the children in your care. We will also discuss the unique challenges faced by foster and adoptive families when coping with grief. Kate’s Club has been supporting grieving children since 2003 and believes that no child should grieve alone.

Great information

Awesome

GREAT

I enjoyed the course. I did have a child in my home who dealt with death of a family member and all he talked about was him dying, so I had to keep encouraging him that his life matter and his past does not determine his future.

great

Very rewarding because I am able to use information for my own relief

It was a good match I have known people to go through similar situations

I've lost all my grandparents. I'm still learning to cope if death.

My mom died of cancer in 2002. I'm still dealing with grief.

Yes Very good

Giving up foster children who have been with you for a couple of years is very hard to do. And I believed you do give when they leave.

It was very informative. I lost a parent and then my foster daughter lost her mother so the strategies for families was very helpfu.
