They’ve Seen Fire, They’ve Seen Rain: Helping Youth Weather the Storms of Grief

@ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

“All I know right now is I lost my family. I feel as though I lost everything.”
—Kevin, youth in foster care

As children navigate their way through foster care during COVID-19, their lives are being inundated by loss and grief. Findings from empirical child-centered research demonstrate that youth in foster care experience multiple losses, and that their grief is often unacknowledged and disenfranchised. With the onset of COVID-19, youths’ loss experiences have escalated, and their needs have become even more pronounced.

This webinar will address the losses that youth in foster care face, the unique challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic presents for youth in foster care who are grieving, and how adults can help youth weather the storms of grief.

Presenter: Monique B. Mitchell, PhD, FT, Director of Translational Research & Curriculum Development, The Dougy Center: The National Center for Grieving Children & Families
