Description: 

Many complicated issues arise when a child is exposed to a traumatic event as a result of a violent crime. This 2-day interactive training is designed for victim advocates who want to develop knowledge and skills to provide appropriate services for children experiencing trauma and grief as a result of violence. You will examine how children perceive death, how they process grief and trauma, and how you can recognize the signs of grief and trauma in children and support their recovery. Using a multidisciplinary team approach, victim service providers, mental health professionals, and law enforcement can improve existing services and create new opportunities to support child living with grief.
