Teen Self-Harming Series: Dealing with Grief
From the desk of Tammy Hayes, Middle School Principal:
The second in our series is one that takes a broad look at the many approaches to helping your teen navigate grief. Grief over any sundry of topics can lead teens to self-harm or self-loathing behaviors. This podcast goes into great detail for parents as to how to view your child’s perspective of grief and gives helpful insight into the thought processes that may be going on. I found it very helpful and a good reminder that it is virtually impossible to understand how grief affects the teenage heart but encouraging as a parent to hear ideas of how to meet them where they are with services designed to bring comfort and support.
I encourage you to listen to the following podcast on dealing with teenage grief. http://www.heartlightministries.org/blogs/pttradio/2014/02/06/weekend-helping-teens-walk-grief/?utm_source=feedblitz&utm_medium=FeedBlitzEmail&utm_content=207988&utm_campaign=On-Demand_2014-02-06%2015%3a05
