The Other Side of Happiness: Talking to Children about Bereavement and Loss by Sukanya Wignaraja

CLICK HER TO RESERVE A SLOT!

 

How do children understand death and dying? And how do we talk to our children about death in a meaningful, helpful and safe way? This is a difficult topic that many parents will avoid yet there is plenty of evidence from research to show that it's healthier and more beneficial for children if they are included in such conversations. This workshop explores these issues and looks at how we can navigate our way through such discussions.

Everyone gets to experience different emotions.  From time to time, some of them can be quite overwhelming and can interfere with some part of daily living.  Such may be when we ourselves, or our children, get anxious, excessively worried, afraid and angry.
