Presented at the 2022 Conference of The Association of Death Education & Counseling - The Thanatology Association in April 2022.

We are proud to recognize the hard work and innovative spirit of our staff and members our the CaringMatters community, who are affiliated with the University of Maryland, for their advancement of resources in their field children's bereavement support services.

 

Erin M. Hill, Karen M. O’Brien, Gilly Cannon, Allison Stearns, Carol Walsh, Shereen Ashai, Madelyn Harris, & Karoline Trovato collaborated on a study of CaringMatters' Good Grief Clubs resulting in findings presented in a poster session at a recent conference of the Association of Death Education & Counseling - The Thanatology Association. Entitled "“Five Deep Breaths” Helping Children Learn to Cope with Grief," the key finding of the research was that school-based grief groups are an effective way for grieving youth to learn coping skills. The research presents the REST framework to help educators and counselors equip grieving children with a coping toolkit.
