Grief Talks Webinar Series - January 2021 - The Curious Observer: Understanding the Behavior of Grieving Children
We often misunderstand grief in children, or mistakenly believe that children do not experience grief at all. Yet, anyone old enough to love is old enough to grieve. Because young children and infants experience and respond to grief in unique ways, their grief is not always clear to adults and caregivers. Children’s grief can even be masked for adults because children communicate via their behaviors, such as play.

Since it can be difficult for children to verbally express their complicated and confusing feelings about the death of their loved one, especially during times of grief and loss, it’s important that we understand behaviors such as play as ways of communication. This webinar will discuss how behaviors can serve as a manifestation of children’s grief. As a caring adult, you will learn activities and interactions that can support the children in your life through their grief work.

During this webinar, participants will:
1. Learn how behavior (such as play) is a form of communication for children from birth into adulthood.
2. Recognize how behaviors can serve as an expression of a child’s grief.
3. Identify activities and interactions that support children in their grief work.
