Each of us has our own way of feeling most comfortable in the world. This is also true when we are grieving the death of someone in our lives. There are many different ways individuals may express, cope with, and experience their grief. This presentation will discuss different grieving styles, with a focus on children and teens, and many of the dynamics impacted by a death in the family.
