Helping Adolescents Cope with Loss: HFA's 21st Annual Living with Grief Program

Overview

Helping Adolescents Cope with Loss

HFA's 21st Annual Living with Grief Program (2014)

Helping Adolescents Cope with Loss

"Living With Grief: Helping Adolescents Cope with Loss"

Please read all information carefully prior to registering.  

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

This new program focuses exclusively on the issues that adolescents face as they cope with loss.  Adolescence, broadly defined, from middle school years to emerging adulthood, is a significant developmental period where adolescents form identity, independence, and intimacy.  Illness and loss profoundly influence these processes.  Moreover, adolescent encounters with loss are likely to be traumatic – deaths by accident, suicide, and homicide.  This program explores the ways that healthcare workers, hospices, educators, social workers, counselors, clergy, funeral directors, and other professionals can assist adolescents as they cope with loss.

Please see attached Program Information Sheet for further details including Learning Objectives and Expert Panelists.

 

HFA is pleased to bring you this program in partnership with:

Foundation for End-of-Life Care -Platinum Sponsor

Dignity Memorial Funeral Providers- Gold Sponsor

National Association of Social Workers- Friend of HFA

Association for Death Education and Counseling- Friend of HFA
