This is a three hour training on the issues of grief and loss experienced by foster parents, foster youth, social workers and the child’s own family. Special emphasis will be placed on the stages of grief and loss as they apply to each entity.

The dynamics of child removal trauma and being placed with “strangers” in foster care are also covered in a grief and loss capacity.
