Course Available

Each of us responds to loss in our own unique ways. As parents, we often find ourselves in the challenging role as the primary support for children amidst our own profound grief. Further complicating the dynamic, our personal way of grieving may be quite different than how our children grieve. This interactive workshop will explore Darcie Sims's four grief styles and explore practical ideas for supporting each of the different styles. Together we can honor individual responses to loss while strengthening the family system.

This webinar is presented by the TAPS Institute for Hope and Healing®.
