Dealing with the Tragic Loss of a Classmate: A Conversation on Talking With Our Children About Death

The Newton North PTSO has arranged for a forum Thursday, October 10, from 6:00 to 7:15PM at the West Suburban YMCA entitled “Dealing with the Tragic Loss of a Classmate: A Conversation on Talking With Our Children About Death.” Joanna Bridger, LICSW, and Dr. Larry Berkowitz from the Riverside Trauma Center will share important information about how to talk with your child/children about a sudden death and how to support your child/children and yourself through this difficult time.

A previously scheduled Newton North PTSO meeting that includes light refreshments and a chance to learn about the many services that the YMCA offers for teens, including a tour of the Teen Center, will follow this conversation. All parents and guardians are welcome to attend.
