Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Psychology Volume 02, Issue 13: When Children Grieve: A Pediatrician’s Perspective.

The goal of this program is to improve the efficacy of intervention and support for bereavement in children. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Elaborate on the role of the pediatrician, nurse, or health care worker in the bereavement process of a child.
2. Communicate support and empathy in an appropriate manner to a child who has experienced the loss of a parent or loved one.
3. Discuss the limitations of a child’s thought processes in coping with the loss of a loved one.
4. Recognize an adolescent’s need for support during the bereavement process.
5. Use the resources available for health care providers to help them cope with the death of a patient and to help a child adjust to a death in the family.

The original programs were presented by David J. Schonfeld, MD, Chair, Department of Pediatrics, Drexel University College of Medicine; Director, National Center for School Crisis and Bereavement; Pediatrician-in-Chief, St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, Philadelphia, PA.
