This new program focuses exclusively on the issues that adolescents face as they cope with loss.  Adolescence, broadly defined, from middle school years to emerging adulthood, is a significant developmental period where adolescents form identity, independence, and intimacy.  Illness and loss profoundly influence these processes.  Moreover, adolescent encounters with loss are likely to be traumatic – deaths by accident, suicide, and homicide.  This program explores the ways that healthcare workers, hospices, educators, social workers, counselors, clergy, funeral directors, and other professionals can assist adolescents as they cope with loss. 

Please see attached Program Information Sheet for further details including Learning Objectives and Expert Panelists.
