System of Care Academy: Supporting Grieving Children with Non-Death Losses

June 4 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


This session focuses on supporting grieving children navigating non-death losses. Participants will gain insights into the diverse impact of losses such as divorce, family separation, or incarceration. Participants will walk away with practical strategies for validation, communication, and fostering resilience will be provided to promote emotional well-being in grieving children across varied contexts. Join us to learn the importance of building resilience in grieving children for future success.

Each year, SOC Academy serves a diverse audience that includes advocates, clinicians, case managers, prevention specialists, peer support specialists, educators, faith-based leaders, psychologists/psychiatrists, child care providers, Family Resource & Youth Services Center staff, juvenile justice staff, family and juvenile services staff, community-based services staff, child welfare staff, public health staff, families and youth with lived experience, interested community members, and more. Last year SOC Academy was offered as a learning series, and it hosted 1438 attendees representing 32 states.

The Academy is convened by Kentucky’s Department for Behavioral Health, Developmental and Intellectual Disabilities and Mental Health America of Kentucky.

Continuing education units will be available, pending board approvals, and the website will be updated as approved. American Sign Language (ASL Interpreters) and Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) will be available upon request.
