CCPA to hold grief management seminars| March 3, 2014
As part of a Spring Seminar Series, the College of Community and Public Affairs will host two grief management seminars with Kira Lallas on Wednesday, March 19 in room DC-223 at the University Downtown Center, 67 Washington Street in Binghamton.
The first seminar, titled “Understanding and Supporting Grieving Children,” held from 9 a.m.-noon and tailored for practitioners, will explore the fundamental principle of supporting children ages 5-12 who are grieving the death of a significant person. The presentation will include discussion about developmental stages, how feelings are expressed in normal and complicated grief, and steps to follow as practitioners to best facilitate integration and build emotional skills. Lallas will offer a framework by which to approach this process and suggestions for language to use, and will coach caregivers with fun and creative activities.
The second seminar, “Understanding and Supporting Grieving Teens,“ held from 1-4 p.m., will address the challenges and opportunities specific to teens ages 13-17 who are grieving the death of a significant person. While a teenager's understanding of death is developmentally closer to that of an adult, they are managing other natural stages of emotional and social growth that can make these years a difficult time to process death. Lallas will offer a framework by which to approach supporting grieving teens, as well as provide nformation about developmental stages and structuring support groups for teens. Case examples will also be provided.
The cost to attend either seminar is $65 per person or $90 to attend both sessions. Light refreshments will be provided. Lunch is on your own. To register, go online
. For questions, contact Joann Lindstrom at 777-9178.
