Summary:
Few events in a child's life can affect them as greatly as the death of a loved one.

This profound new video resource offers helpful information to adults (parents, caregivers, professionals) on how to help children of all ages grieve with hope and heart. You will meet two experts: Khris Ford and Paula D'Arcy, whose personal experiences with death give them intimate knowledge and compassion. And you will meet others who are now in the process of helping their children through grief.

Topics covered include:
• Differences between how adults and children grieve.
• How a parent can grieve and still help a child to grieve.
• Three common feelings expressed by all grieving children.
• How to be authentic and tell children the truth about death.

Khris Ford is the Founder/Executive Director of My Healing Place, Austin TX's Center for Grief, Loss, and Trauma. She has spent nearly twenty years working with children and adults who have experienced a significant or traumatic loss. She holds a Master's degree in Counselor Education, is a Certified Grief and Trauma Specialist and School Consultant, and a trained spiritual director.

Paula D'Arcy is a trained psychotherapist who has spent many years ministering to those who grieve. She worked with the Peale Foundation, founded by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, from 1980 until his death in 1993. In 1975 she survived a drunk driving accident, which took the lives of her husband and young daughter. Today her work includes leading workshops and writing books, including When People Grieve: The Power of Love in the Midst of Pain.
