Widowed parents regularly list concern for their children’s mental health after the death of a parent, and fear of their own ability to parent their children while they are grieving themselves, as major post-loss worries. In this session we will discuss coping strategies, grief at different developmental stages, self care, resources available for your children and for you as a family and much more. You will have an opportunity to share stories and ideas with others walking a similar path as widowed parents, and leave this workshop more confident about your family’s future.
Join Kath McCormack, Healing Center Founder, therapist and widowed mom for a frank discussion about the joys and challenges of parenting grieving children. Kath’s children Ricky and Barb were 3 and 5 when their dad died at the age of 33.
