Creative Approaches for Supporting Grieving Children

Play, creativity and the arts have a unique capacity to respond to human suffering, and to offer safe spaces for the exploration of ideas, feelings and questions around the experiences of death and grief. While Andrea will touch on the theoretical aspects of  supporting children and youth who are grieving a death in this webinar, the emphasis will be placed on identifying play-based and other creative approaches to supporting children’s grief.  This webinar is designed for parents and other relatives and caregivers, as well as volunteers and professionals who are looking to expand their toolbox and confidence in creatively engaging with grieving children and youth.

Do you have a relative, friend, colleague, or acquaintance who has experienced the death of someone close to them? Despite having the best intentions, some people inadvertently say things that can create challenges for the grieving person. Sometimes people don’t say anything at all out of a fear of saying the wrong thing which can contribute to a sense of isolation for the griever.

In this webinar you will learn: 

  • Ways that grief can manifest

  • Concrete tips and strategies for effectively supporting someone who is grieving

  • What not to say to someone who is grieving the dying or death of someone in their life

A good friend sits down and reaches out to a troubled friend.

Michelle Methven’s daughter Stella Joy died from a brain tumor at the age of 3. The experience that Michelle and her family had with the funeral home who cared for Stella after her death inspired Michelle to become a funeral director herself, which she has since done. In this webinar we will share some of Stella’s story as well as practical strategies for supporting children through funerals and other ceremonies. This webinar is designed for parents and other caregivers as well as funeral service workers, counsellors, health care providers, volunteers, and anyone else who is supporting a grieving child.
