Talking to Kids About Death - Part 1

The death of a loved one is difficult for anyone. Children and teens often need guidance when coping with their grief. Depending on their developmental stage, they might have difficulty understanding what "death" means and how it impacts their lives. For this video, Thomas Matthews, MD, child and adolescent psychiatrist at Clarity Child Guidance Center, addresses the following: the role of vocabulary and the use of art to communicate feelings, how parents impact how children cope with loss, understanding the role of development, definitions of loss, and Kuble-Ross Stages of Loss. This 3-part series was recorded at a community presentation on November 12, 2010.
