For Children's Grief Awareness Month, Our TreeHouse, in collaboration
with the National Alliance for Grieving Children, will host a Fall Webcast
on Children's Grief.

Ethical Considerations for Grief Support after a Traumatic Death
Death, dying, and bereavement are unfortunate themes that appear
almost daily in news headlines. Rarely is there any discussion on a
national level as to how community traumatic death impacts the lives of
children, teenagers, and families.

Session I: “Seasons of Love: Measuring a Child’s Life after Suicide”
Presented by: Janet E. McCord, PhD, FT
This presentation will offer a brief overview of what suicide is and isn’t,
and then review the literature on grief after suicide. Strategies for
supporting children, teens and families after a suicide will be discussed.

Session II: “The Suffocated Grief of Marginalized Youth Bereaved by
Homicide Loss: On Honoring our Ethical Responsibilities”

Presented by: Tashel C. Bordere, PhD, CT
Drawing from research and case examples, we will explore ways in which
loss and grief processes are uniquely complicated in deaths by homicide
within multiple contexts - developmental, social, historical and geo-political
contexts. Participants will learn about culturally conscientious and
responsive strategies and strength-based practices in ethically sound
work with marginalized youth and communities.

Session III: “How the Family Faces Traumatic Loss”
Presented by: Debbie Hoy and Dr. William G. (Bill) Hoy, D.Min., FT
In addition to the practical evidenced-based practices for psychotherapy in
loss and trauma Dr. Hoy will offer in this workshop, he and his wife will talk
about their personal journey of integrating this loss into their lives. They
will talk poignantly about the impact on themselves, their adult children,
and their friendship circle, as well as the ways they continue to grapple
with meaning in the shadow of this event.
