Treating Grief and Loss in Black Children and Youth

October 21 @ 11:00 am CDT - 12:00 pm CDT

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in over 675,000 deaths in the U.S. among which people of color, including Black people, have been overrepresented. This has caused grief and loss among children who have lost their parents and caregivers. Children in this situation are at increased risk of depression especially given additional adversities related to the pandemic including the economic crisis, racial injustice, social isolation, and educational disruption. The presenter will examine the differences between low mood, clinical depression, and bereavement among children and will discuss measures for coping with grief in an effort to prevent episodes of childhood clinical depression.
