(Cost: $175) This one day workshop will examine the many aspects and needs of parental grief following the death of a child. Regardless of age and/or gestation, the off-time death of a child produces devastation for the parents, the surrounding family and the community at large. We will examine parental grief following pre- and post-natal death, death of a child by illness, accident and suicide and death of an adult child. Discussions will include the experience of disenfranchised grief due to miscarriage, stillbirth, and suicide. The workshop will provide participants with therapeutic techniques in supporting the individual, couple and family following the death of a child. Therapeutic modalities will include narrative therapy, CBT and meaning-making.
