Childhood Grief in Context: Learning how to raise children who are emotionally resilient in the face of grief

Wednesday, January 15th from 7-8:30 pm

On Wednesday, January 15th, join Dr. Svetlana Leeds, for a presentation on childhood grief in context: how to raise children who have the cognitive, emotional, and social flexibility to work through grief at various stages of development; how to help children build the foundation for resilience before they are faced with hardships; and how we can recognize and support children through the many stages of the grieving journey.

In conjunction with NIH and NLM, Sharon Public Library presents A Living Person's Guide to Dying, a multi-part speaker series about death and dying, green burials, digital estate planning, and more. Although death is an inevitable reality of life, we often delay conversations about the topic until after the fact--a habit that can create unnecessary stress or confusion about our end-of-life wishes. The Library is seeking to launch an honest, open series of discussions around this important topic.
