Supporting Grieving Teens
Grief is a confusing, emotional, and heart-wrenching experience for all of us. To experience grief, particularly of a family member or loved one's passing when you're a teen creates even more confusion during a time in life that can already be very challenging. What are the signs of grief in teens and what are the best ways we can support our teens in their grief?

Listen in today as we talk with President and CEO of Ele's Place, Laurie Baumer. Ele's Place has recently started a Teen Zone, a space where the teens can come to process their grief, share their experiences, and form community with one another. On today's show, Laurie shares how grief may show up differently in teens than in younger children as well as what we can do as friends and family to help them process their grief in a healthy way.

It's an important topic and one that can shape the lives of our teens. Listen in and for more information about children, teens, and grief as well as the work of Ele's Place, please visit www.elesplace.org or call (517) 482-1315.
