Talking with kids about loss: Schools will host grief specialist Sunday

In the wake of the unexpected death of local teen Emma Ryan, adults are struggling to express their own feelings about loss and may be uncertain as to how to talk with their kids about the topic.

The Hull Public Schools have arranged a special forum Sunday night with national bereavement expert Maria Trozzi, who will lead a presentation: When Our Children Face Losses: Words, Strategies And Wisdom That Promote Resilience

This free presentation is for parents, grandparents, guardians, and caregivers to learn strategies that will help guide their children through the grieving process.

Sunday, Nov. 6 • 6:30 p.m.
Hull High School Auditorium • 180 Main St.

Join Maria Trozzi, a national expert in the area of children and family bereavement, an author of Talking With Children About Loss, co-founder and former director of the Good Grief Program at Boston Medical Center for nearly 30 years.
Using an interactive format, she will lead parents to support their children as they face the inevitable losses of growing up, find strategies and words that help them master coping skills, and share her 20+ years of experience and expertise that inform prevention and promote resilience in our adolescents facing a complicated world.
