The Private Worlds of Bereaved Children
March 28, 2018 | 7 - 9 p.m.
Part of a free public lecture series.
Childhood loss is profoundly different than the grief experience of adults in a number of key ways. Based on years of clinical experience assessing and treating bereaved children, adolescents and their families, Dr. Balmer will walk participants through the private worlds of bereaved children as she explores themes of trauma, loss, and bereavement over time.
- Identify what makes childhood loss unique from loss during adulthood
- Appreciate children’s concepts of death and how these impact the grief process
- Understand ways mental health professionals, parents and caregivers can assist children after a death
