Children and Loss: Navigating the Grieving Process with YouthThursday May 02 2019 7:30 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Travel Alcove
Grief is the normal reaction to any significant loss, yet it is an experience that we try and shelter our kids and teenagers from having. Join us for an evening of compassionate conversation around the difficult topic of death and the grieving process for children.
Accompanied by Mike Goldberg - Community Outreach and Education Coordinator for Palliative Manitoba; local authors, Janet Shindle (Nana’s Magic Swing) and Julie Muller (Till we meet again: A children’s book about death and grieving) will read their books and facilitate a discussion revolving around grief and the challenge of communicating with children who have experienced significant loss.
Janet Shindle lives in Portage La Prairie with her husband and is a retired social worker.
Julie Muller lives in Brandon and is a wife and mother of three growing boys.
