Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare is hosting an online video conference, “Always My Child: Parent Grief,” on Monday, July 6, at 5 pm.
Led by David Hargrave, LSW, CTP, bereavement counseling professional with Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare, the online video conference will identify and discuss the grief of a parent who loses a child. He also will address secondary losses, the additional losses that occur as a result of the child’s death, and disenfranchised grief, which occurs when friends and family minimize the parent’s loss. He will conclude the online video conference with a discussion about helpful tips for a grieving parent.
This online video conference is for parents who are grieving the loss of a child. The relationship between a parent and a child is special. When a child dies, it can be so difficult for a parent.
