While it may not be too difficult for many of us to have empathy for a student who has experienced a loss, we may struggle with communicating that empathy to the student in a concrete way that supports their grief recovery process. This session is designed to provide a better understanding of grief and loss in students and to explore interventions that providers can use to support grief recovery. This session will explain the foundational principles and COVID-19-specific considerations about grief and loss. We will review grief indicators in students as well as general strategies for helping them grieve in a developmentally-appropriate way.


Speaker: Rozlyn Kwong, LMFT, Hathaway Sycamore Child and Family Services
