Grief is a powerful emotional and physical reaction to the loss of someone or something. It can be a complex emotion to process and for children and teens it is no different. During the pandemic, there has been more loss than ever for children.

This week, we’re talking to Brian Pendleton, a Chaplain and bereavement coordinator with Saint Luke’s Hospice House, about the impact grief can have, why having coping skills to process grief is important, and a special way Saint Luke’s Home Care and Hospice has been helping children and teens through grief for the past decade.
