Supporting Children and Families Following an Overdose Death

Kara is excited to be a local webinar viewing host for the National Alliance for Children's Grief annual Conference & Webcast. This popular event will feature two thought leaders from the field of childhood bereavement. Join us in person for this complimentary educational conference.

Tuesday, March 21st from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

The opioid epidemic continues to surge in the US, with overdose deaths reaching 107,000 in 2021, a record in the US and an increase of nearly 20% over the previous annual high. Unfortunately, accompanying grief, the impact on children and families isn’t well-researched and often remains overshadowed and misunderstood. Both the speakers and topic will appeal to a diverse audience, including professionals from funeral service, hospice care, health care, education, mental health, child welfare, and bereavement support. The first half of the program is designed to help understand ambiguous loss in substance abuse and to provide strategies to support affected children and families. The second half of the program will assist professionals in responding to the unique grief following a substance-related death. 3 CEs (Continuing Education credits) are available for $45 through NACG.

About the Speakers: Eleanor Haley, MS and Litsa Williams, MA, LCSW-C are the co-founders of the online grief community What’s Your Grief. Together they run the grief education and creative exploration websites ‘What’s Your Grief’ and ‘Grief in Six Words’. Both are mental health professionals with a collective 25+ years of experience working with people coping with all types of complicated losses and life transitions.
