Grieving the Death of a Child
Wednesday, 7th July 2021 at 7.00pm (AEDT)
Are you wondering if what you're thinking or feeling is normal?
Do you want to learn strategies to help understand and manage your grief?
Are you concerned about how your partner, child or other family members are grieving?
In this online information session I'm partnering with another specialist grief counsellor, Nathan MacArthur from Sydney Grief Counselling Services, to answer your questions and provide practical strategies to help manage your own grief or help others who are grieving.
In this session we will discuss:
the unique challenges experienced by parents grieving the death of a child
the differences between the loss of a child at birth, in childhood or in adulthood
impacts on couple and family relationships, including supporting siblings
managing difficult questions and comments (e.g. How many children do you have?)
strategies to cope in the first few months and in the years to come
There will be a live question and answer session.
This session is suitable for:
people experiencing grief and bereavement following the death of a child
anyone supporting someone who is grieving the death of a child
Will other people be able to see me?

People who attended previous sessions said:
"Both presenters were clear, organized and informative. I will definitely be tuning in again for your sessions"
"Great presenters with great presentation skills and come across as warm and caring people."
"I think it's really helpful for people that are experiencing grief to have support, and there were a few of us known to each other dialling in from separate homes. Thank you both so much for that session. It helped myself, my partner, and our friends."
This Grief Information Session will take place on Wednesday 7th July at 7pm (AEST).
