About this Podcast
Grief, or the reaction to the loss of a loved one, is universal. We all experience grief. But does that experience differ in children and adolescents? Estimates suggest that about 5% of children 15 or younger have lost one or both parents (Steen, 1998). Several interventions exist to assist these children with their grief, including bereavement camps. In this episode, Dr. Irene McClatchey discusses the effects of grief on children and how to effectively intervene in order to help them process the loss of a parent through illness, injury, or death.

Anchored. is MFLN Family Development's podcast created to support and inspire those connected to military families. Each episode focuses on real life struggles and topic areas that many families encounter. We invite you to sit back, relax, and get Anchored. with us!
