Presentation Description

Creative expression is a powerful tool that helps children build community, resilience, and confidence. For children experiencing grief, using creative expression can help children work through difficult emotions or trauma. In this webinar, participants will practice art skills to help children they serve work through the difficult emotions associated with grief. They will also learn more about how to discuss the creative expression process with young children.
