Resources for Parents
This link will take you to the Alive site where you can view their different services such as support groups, individual sessions, and a grief summer camp for kids. Providers can be found by clicking on the “Our Grief Counselors and Locations” button.
Grief Support Activities from Alive
Sesame Street offers videos about grief and loss along with a caregiver guide, storybook, and feelings journal. These resources can be found here.
This site has modules that provide more in-depth information about talking with children about death and dying, understanding a child's grief, and supporting them.
The Dougy Center offers grief resources for both children and adults. The link I have attached is for children, but looking under the Grief Support and Resources tab provides more information and resources for adults as well.
Books for Helping Children with Grief
Below are some books that I think could be helpful to read with the kids. These links are from a Grief Support Center and are virtual readings of the book. Each reading also has a description of an activity the kids can work on in relation to the book such as coloring and drawing about their loved one.
