Dancing in the darkness: Creative approaches to working with grieving children and youth

Lisa Toye, MSW, RSW
presented by SickKids CCMH Learning Institute

Live webinar
December 7, 2022 | 9 a.m to 4 p.m. EST

Play, creativity and the arts have a unique capacity to respond to human suffering. They offer experimental spaces for the exploration of ideas, feelings and questions around the experiences of death and grief.

This experiential training will explore play-based, arts-based, and other creative approaches to both psychoeducation and counseling/psychotherapy. The facilitators will share ways of using such approaches to facilitate grief education and support in schools. Along with ways of supporting grieving children and youth virtually. They will present many easy to use (and modify) creative techniques in working with grieving children and youth. Participants will have the opportunity to engage in safe, experiential activities to better understand the process of using creative approaches. No art experience is necessary.

The learning objectives of this webinar are to provide participants with:

• Creative approaches to supporting children and youth who are grieving the dying or death of someone in their life
• Art and play-based strategies to add to their therapeutic toolkit
• Strategies for supporting grieving children and youth in schools

This webinar is part of the Children’s grief and bereavement certificate program . Participants may register for any of the certificate program’s individual webinars as a stand-alone training.
