When Death Impacts Your Community: Helping Children Heal

November 15, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Schools and communities encounter deaths that have a significant impact on their children and teens: the death of a parent, a friend, a sibling, a staff member. Death brings a level of trauma that is difficult to navigate, whether the result of an illness, a suicide or drug overdose, a homicide or other violent loss. This all-day conference will include nationally-recognized experts on planning for and responding to events, and local school personnel and students who have lived through tragic experiences. We’ll also explore strategies for addressing the fears that result from these events whether personally experienced or observed through the news. Finally, there will be sessions on supporting the healing of children both in the short-term and long-term.

CEUs: 6.0 credits have been approved by NASW and APA. This program has been approved for AMA PRA Cetegory 1 Credits
