Grief & Loss: When children grieve
Play • 39 min

Dear parents,

When children and youth grieve, they can express loss in ways that aren't always so clear to adults, making it challenging to know how to identify when they are processing loss and how to support them through it. Elsje Hannah is an experienced grief and loss therapist who has joined us today to offer some insight into what our kids might be experiencing after a significant loss.

It's so hard to watch our babies hurt, no matter what age they are. If you have a child who has lost a loved one, a pet, or has walked through a significant life loss such as divorce, a change in communities or schools, or anything else that meant the world to them, we see you and want to offer some support. I hope you find our conversation helpful.

For further resources, you can check out the Canadian Virtual Hospice or read more about Elsje's counselling and retreat services in Salt Spring, Cloverdale and Fort Langley, BC here.
