Grief Support for Teens

Helpful books for grieving teens:

When a Friend Dies, by Helen Fitzgerald
The Grieving Teen, by Helen Fitzgerald
Geen Grief Relief: Parenting and Understanding, Support and Guidance by Dr. Heidi Horsely
Straight Talk About Death for Teenagers:  How to cope with losing someone you love, by Earl Grollman
Help a Teen's Grieving Heart:  100 Practical Ideas for families, friends and caregivers by Alan D. Wolfelt, Ph.D.


I would like to share this video provided by a professional grief counselor.   Hopefully, this will provide much needed support as we mourn the loss of our two students, Josh and Dayden. There will forever be a sweet memory of our connection with our two young students.
