When Families Grieve

Brought to you by Talk, Listen, Connect

As a family, you face challenges every day – some big, some small. Somehow you rise to overcome them, working together. Now you are facing an enormous challenge: the death of your loved one. Grief, the intense set of feelings associated with death, is a family experience. Grief is complex; it encompasses a wide range of emotions that can come and go in waves. Be assured that there is no one way or length of time to grieve. As you support your children, remember that every child is unique and will grieve at his own pace. While the sadness may not completely go away, you and your family can find strength in one another. Trust that the bond you and your children create will go a long way toward building a sense of emotional resilience that can last a lifetime.

When Families Grieve presents families' personal stories about coping with the death of a parent, as well as strategies that have helped these families move forward.
