  • Numbers also do not account for all the other types of losses that children and teens face on a daily basis: incarceration, divorce, poverty, relocation, natural disasters, relationships ending, pet loss, etc. Grief education especially can help address these non-death losses
  • For us to know and be aware of: Grief support normalizes grief, provides structure, and builds a sense of community
  • Continuing to answer the question, is there a need to offer community based services?
  • Some resources might be partners you already have, so lets move onto step 2: identifying essential partners
  • RELATIONSHIPS!!!!
  • And getting them on board
  • Just because someone works with youth does not mean they are a friend to them. This characteristic is not absolutely essential, but it will make your job a lot easier.
  • Have an “elevator pitch”. Keep information simple and essential. Know your audience, what grabs a school administrator might be very different than a guidance counselor program director at a JJ facility. You really have to be your own best advocate and a salesperson.
  • Change from Life Management to H.O.P.E. Fee for service consideration when school funding is cut.
  • Mention that paid staff facilitate services, NOT volunteers.
  • Mention various themes: grief 101, feelings, changes, coping, funerals, remembering, graduation
  • Generally our policy is to let schools or agencies contact us for help, we are working on partnerships to build up a youth oriented crisis response team. Know what your community has, this may be a need that is already being met in your area. Offering follow-up grief support might be a good place to supplement existing services
  • The more other adults and professionals we can educate about the needs of grieving young people the more young people we help.
