When Death Impacts Your Community: Helping Children Heal: November 15, 2018
FRIENDS WAY is pleased to announce its first annual professional development conference. FRIENDS WAY is a unique organization in Rhode Island and Southern Massachusetts that provides peer support bereavement groups for children and teens who have experienced the death of a loved one.
Schools and communities encounter deaths that have a significant impact on their children and teens: the death of a parent, a friend, a sibling, a staff member. Death brings a level of trauma that is difficult to navigate, whether the result of an illness, a suicide or drug overdose, a homicide or other violent loss. This all-day conference will include nationally-recognized experts on planning for and responding to events, and local school personnel and students who have lived through tragic experiences. We’ll also explore strategies for addressing the fears that result from these events whether personally experienced or observed through the news. Finally, there will be sessions on supporting the healing of children both in the short-term and long-term.
The Bradley Conference fall series begins October 2018. All sessions in this series will be held at Bradley Hospital at 1011 Veterans Memorial Parkway in East Providence, Rhode Island unless otherwise noted.
