Life After Loss (Geelong)

From August 16, 2017 9:30 am until August 16, 2017 2:00 pm

We all encounter grief when we lose someone or something that is important to us. Children and young people in out-of-home-care often experience grief as a result of being separated from their families, carers, pets, school friends, and possessions. Carers often experience grief after the end of a placement.

Working through grief is a personal journey that takes time. Grieving children and young people need caring, supportive, adults to help them navigate the confusing feelings, thoughts, and behaviours associated with grief. Our own personal losses can affect our ability to respond to grieving children and young people. It can be a great comfort to put the confusing experience of grief in the context of current thinking about grief as a process, and as a central experience of what it means to be human. Reflecting on grief and loss will assist us to be more accepting of our own grief journey, and be better prepared to meet the needs of grieving foster children.
