Max and Beatrice Wolfe Centre for Children's Grief and Palliative Care, Mount Sinai Hospital, 600 Univeristy Avenue

Advanced Practice Teaching Day for social workers, child welfare services and educators, mental health professionals, palliative care providers, physicians and nurses

Grief is neither a mental state, nor an affliction, nor a problem to solve. It is skill of life that must be taught and learned.  This workshop day will explore:

  • Dying Parents and Their Children: Strategies for professional leadership when everyone is lost
  • Teaching Parents to "Love Their Child to Death": Mission possible
  • Playing through the Darkness: Using creativity to engage grieving children and teenagers
  • Guiding in Deep Darkness: What professionals need to know about death and families
