Grief & Loss in the Care System - DVD
2019 Inventory Sale Item
Part of the Foster Parent College Series: Grieving is a natural reaction to a major loss. In foster care, grieving can be experienced at different times in the care situation by everyone involved -- the birth parents, the child, the foster parents, and members of the foster family. Yet this grief is often denied or hidden.
This DVD explores the issues surrounding grief and loss. The stages of grief, how the various members in a foster care situation grieve, and tools for regaining a sense of balance and acceptance after a separation. The discussion segment helps the viewer understand the differences between complex grief and normal grief, and when to seek professional help.
