Grieving Children

When children are grieving it is important to get them into therapy as soon as possible.  Children don't process grief and loss the same way as adults.  From ages 2-8 I often suggest play therapy.  Often children externalize grief and loss through play.  This allows them to express what is going on in their world subconsciously. 

Here is a list of some great books for children who are experiencing grief and loss. 

The Invisible String is a very sweet book that reminds children how much they are connected to their loved ones even after they are gone.
