9/2016 - Counseling Adolescents through Loss, Grief, Trauma
Therapeutic interventions and rituals to support adolescents through loss, grief, and trauma. Adolescence is a difficult time to cope with loss, grief, and trauma. Looked at through a lens of attachment and developmental approaches, the impact on this phase of life can be powerful. These experiences come into the lives of adolescents with more frequency than adults realize. The support that adolescents need in response to death loss is often less than they actually receive and need. This is also true for non-death losses, which may take the form of a romantic breakup, friendship loss, parental divorce, parental incarceration, or relocation.”
