Talking with Adolescents About Loss

Parent Session to be held on Monday, November 30th.

 

Parent Session to be held on Monday, November 30th.  

Medway High School and the greater Medway community was saddened by the recent loss of senior Maddie Lamson. As in other communities, Medway has experienced a great deal of loss over the last 5-10 years. Supporting children and adolescents during these times can be difficult. Everyone experiences loss and moves through stages of grief in different ways.  Parents often struggle with knowing how to best support their children.  As days and weeks go by, parents are in the best position to monitor their children's behavior and feelings that may surface in response to loss.

Riverside Trauma Center has provided a great amount of support to Medway High School as we deal with this recent loss; as well as, following losses in the past.  We will host a parent session facilitated by Larry Berkowitz, Ed. D., Co-founder and Director of Riverside Trauma Center, on Monday, November 30th at 6:30 pm at Medway High School Auditorium to support parents as they consider how best to have conversations with their children about death and loss.
