Ethical Considerations for Working with Children Anticipating a Death 
This webcast will explore the ethical implications of supporting children who are anticipating the death of a parent, the death of a sibling, or their own death.

Our three presenters will provide practical information and advice for caring for children in the face of a terminal diagnosis. They will share information about how to talk to children about death, how to include children in rituals, and ways to offer support throughout the dying process.
