About the event

Grief is a part of life that affects people of all ages, including young children. Young children are often just beginning to develop the vocabulary and cognitive abilities to understand and talk about those painful feelings. When children experience death, they may have a hard time understanding, managing, and expressing their emotions. Families and early childhood staff can model self-care and help children build coping skills and resilience during difficult times. Join this webinar to learn strategies to help children and others cope with grief and to find resources about grief from Sesame Workshop.

This webinar is offered with simultaneous interpretation in Spanish.
