NACG Regional Conference 2022: No Child Grieves Alone (Palo Alto, CA)

October 1, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm PDT

The National Alliance for Children’s Grief (NACG) is proud to announce our inaugural six-state Regional Conference tour entitled “No Child Grieves Alone.” Thanks to the support of our host members in bereavement centers across the United States and our funding partner, the New York Life Foundation, we will support communities in building back after the tremendous losses and isolation of the past two years. Three leading voices in the field of childhood bereavement, Dr. Tashel Bordere, Dr. Michaeleen Burns, and Dr. Donna Schuurman, at six locations across the United States, will connect us in honor of the children we collectively serve. The NACG’s vision is for no child to have to grieve alone, and making this a reality requires collaboration, access, and a unified focus. This conference, and all the sessions, are suited for counselors, social workers, bereavement support professionals, and volunteers and are targeted at those new and experienced in the field of childhood grief and loss.

Cost: This conference is free to attend, and includes lunch. Professionals can earn three (3) CEs for $30.
