About the “No Child Grieves Alone” Community Conference 

The National Alliance for Children’s Grief (NACG) completed our inaugural six-state Regional Conference tour entitled “No Child Grieves Alone” in 2022. 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 supported communities in building back after the tremendous losses and isolation following the COVID-19 pandemic. 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, connected in honor of the children we collectively serve. This conference, and all of 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.

A note from the NACG

We are delighted you are hosting a community presentation of the pre-recorded NACG “No Child Grieves Alone” conference event. As part of this process, the conference was recorded live in New York City on November 1st, 2022 with the intention of the recording being available at no charge for those who want to initiate conversations around childhood bereavement in their community. As you are planning your event, you may also consider adding opportunities for dialogue and relationship-building between your attendees and other organizations. Community collaboration is critical to succeeding in our shared goal that no child grieves alone and this event is intended to support you in starting and continuing these conversations. We encourage you to make the most of this opportunity and share the playback with the widest audience possible.
