The term spirituality often frightens educators in the public-school setting. When understood correctly, however, spirituality is another word for meaning and the exploration of how we make sense of a death is a vital part of helping students grapple with their losses. And losses have piled up this year, haven’t they?
Join us as we discuss together some proven strategies for appropriately exploring how students are making meaning of their losses and using those newly found or renegotiated meanings to make their way through the experiences of grief.
Objectives. At the conclusion of this seminar, participants will be able to…
- Label the ways the renegotiation of meaning is an appropriate activity in school individual counseling and groups
- Utilize strategies and activities for engaging students in exploring the ways their belief systems, family traditions, and cultural values help them make sense of loss
Who should attend?
This seminar is designed for school professionals, teachers, nurses, social services, administrative staff, and ministers who care for bereaved children, teens and their families.
