This presentation will provide a didactic introduction to the field of childhood grief. There are new initiatives to provide support to children who have experienced the death of a family member or friend. We will describe a team approach with Lesley faculty, graduate student interns, and Cambridge Community Center staff to build a community based–partnership to bring HEARTplay, an award–winning children’s bereavement program, to neighborhood centers in Cambridge. Through experientials, we will demonstrate some of HEARTplay’s trauma–informed activities.
