Beate Steller shared a wealth of usable information in a highly relatable format. I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Wendy - Family Support Officer
It was packed full of ideas and theory and was very engaging. I got so much out of it and I appreciated Beate's own passion for working with people in grief and loss.
Really helpful webinar. Beate is very knowledgeable, engaging and approachable. Found the balance of theory and practical elements to be really great. Thank you!
Support children and young people to manage the change, loss and grief that is an inevitable part of their lives.
Dealing with small and large changes and challenges can be difficult for children. Learn age appropriate art and other creative interventions to help children deal with separation, divorce, death and other significant loss experiences. This workshop is based on the premise that the better children learn to manage and grow through changes, the more resilient they become as they face further changes in their adult life. Children can have a very different concept about loss than adults.
In this 3 hour online and interactive workshop you will learn how to support children and adolescents integrate and make sense of significant loss experiences, understand the implications of loss experiences, know loss and grief from a child’s developmental perspective and help children to work through age appropriate creative interventions. This workshop draws from the “Seasons for Growth” program which is an Australian grief and loss support program for children and young people.
Identify different responses children and young people have to loss
Describe skills that develop to assist in managing grief reactions
Assess normal age appropriate loss and grief responses
Discuss children’s concepts of death and how this impacts on the grief process
