CAPT Bereavement, Grief and Loss Certificate Working with Children through Grief and Loss
Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 13-15, 2018 – 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Overview: Working with Children who are anticipating a loss or who have recently experienced a loss through death or separation demands a great deal of the therapist. Therapists need to have a solid understanding of child development and how death and separation is viewed at each age. They need to know the difference between a normal and a complex grief reaction and how to appropriately and simultaneously support children and the adults who care for them as they navigate through this often-tumultuous time in their lives. The application of this knowledge rests on the assumption that the therapist is aware of their own experience with grief and loss, and comes to the play room knowing that the activities they provide and the interactions they support will have a profound affect on the people they treat. In turn, they too will be affected by the stories they hear and bear witness to.
Workshop Attendees This Certificate Program would be of interest to those working with agencies and departments engaged in grief counselling including shelters, adoption agencies, victim witness programs, community living agencies and programs focusing on grief and loss. Also, those working as marriage and family counsellors, child life specialists, educators interested in gaining familiarity with play therapy and would be most valuable to people working with children and families in the mental health field.
