Presented by:
Joe Primo, CEO Good Grief

Childhood bereavement is a public health threat that we must engage with urgency in order to foster resilient adults for the future. While the 5 Stages of Grief have long been debunked, they remain a common belief in our culture and establish false ideologies on what grief is and how we should respond to it. This presentation will discuss childhood bereavement in the 21st century, the science of grief, provide a framework for a critical paradigm shift on bereavement, and engage both our individual and communal opportunities to change the future for grieving children.

Introduction to childhood bereavement:

• What is it
• Grief vs. mourning
• Science/research
• The needs of bereaved children
• The unique environment of a funeral home
