About the Symposium

The National Alliance for Children’s Grief (NACG) Symposium is the longest-running and most comprehensive Childhood Bereavement Symposium offered in the United States. The NACG Symposium draws more than 400 children’s grief support professionals and volunteers from a variety of organizations throughout and outside the United States each year.

The annual NACG Symposium offers participants the opportunity to learn of the latest research and clinical developments in working with children and teens who are grieving; enhance skills and knowledge to deliver state-of-the-art services to these children and adolescents; engage in dialogue with colleagues, clinicians, researchers, and other grief support professionals to exchange ideas, information, and clinical expertise.

The symposium offers varied workshops and poster presentations on topics important to children’s grief issues, program development, non-profit administration, activities, fundraising, grief support models, and more.
