“How can we best aid families recovering from a traumatic death or loss?”
More than two million children and adults die each year in the United States from natural, accidental, homicide, suicide or undetermined cause. Those who are left behind face the task of grief and mourning after a loss to death. Children face deaths with loss of a relationship and sometimes as a witness to a death that may have been violent.
It is the responsibility of adults to provide attention, support, and education to help a child cope with a loss to death. The experience can help the child with future losses. Mastery of saying goodbye to someone can temper the fear of loss and help the child in the future to say hello to new people and begin new relationships.
With the support of the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, the Departments of Mental Health and Public Health, the Los Angeles County of Office of Education, The California Association for Child Life Professionals, and many other professionals, ICAN Associates is able to come together again to talk about treating childhood grief and loss.
Join hundreds of mental health professionals, grieving families, and community representatives in learning how best to aid families recovering from a traumatic death or loss. Ten workshops provide attendees with training to strengthen multi-disciplinary responses to grief and loss.
