There is nothing easy about being a widowed parent, whether you have young children, teens or even adults. Our own grief is experienced in a variety of ways-emotionally, physically and behaviorally. Our minds and bodies can react with shock, rage, fatigue, appetite changes, sleep disturbances and loss of concentration. This applies to us as parents and to our children. How can we take care of ourselves while taking care of and build resilience in our grieving children?
Join Jill Johnson-Young, grief therapist and widow, as we discuss the issues and common experiences of being a widowed parent. We will share coping techniques and discuss strategies as we help our children to survive and ultimately thrive as they move through their grief. Perhaps most importantly, we will share stories and make connections with other widowed parents.
