  Educators need to understand the impact grief can have on the school community, particularly as it strives to meet the goals of academic achievement and classroom management.  Because school personnel are an important part of their students' lives, their response in times of loss can be extremely helpful to student struggling with a wide variety of losses; death, traumatic experiences, divorce, relocation, loss of health, loss of home and many secondary losses.  In fact, students often rely on teachers and school counselors to talk about things that are too painful to discuss at home.  Through lectures, dvd(s), and small groups activities, this workshop will help educators navigate the painful experience of the grieving process with their students.  Topics include: overview of grief and loss, anticipatory grief, the particular grief stages preschooler to higher school students go through after a loss, how to support students through losses, school crisis response procedures, and healing interventions for grieving students.  For more information please contact Mary Lou Griffiths at
