“My Grief is in Bursts!”

Understanding and Supporting Children & Adolescents living with grief

Do you want to create an even safer and compassionate space for children & teens living with grief? These workshops teach an understanding of how children or teens grieve differently than adults and in doses, whether quietly or loudly. With over twenty five years of experience as a former high school teacher and on staff at Brooke’s Place, Carol Braden, LMHC works with professionals and individuals, to better understand grieving children and offers invaluable ways to support them. Certain learning objectives will have more of an emphasis depending on the audience members and the population they serve. See workshop information below regarding continuing education credit, registration fees and workshop location.

“Don’t push me to talk; I don’t always have the words.
Don’t pull words out of me; my grief is not about you.
BE WITH ME and you will see my story unfold.
Now, you are helping me.”
~ a child or teen living with grief

"Thank you to all of Brooke's Place for being exactly what it is for.  It is a wonderful mission everyone there fulfills.  What is more important than helping to mend a broken heart?  It is with Brooke's Place that we who attend are able to keep putting one foot in front of the other.  We look around the group and see those who joined earlier than us and realize they are in a different place and there is hope.  We look around and see those newest members in incredible pain and see we have moved to a different place.  We have grown and survived and that gives us hope to continue our grief journey."
