Helping children respond to death

Helping children respond to death | Grief & Bereavement Counseling | Scoop.it
One woman has devoted her life to supporting young people as they grieve, writes Julie Power.
American Institute Health Care Professionals's insight:

Grieving children need healthy ways to respond to death.  Grieving children should be treated openly and allowed to express themselves.  It is when grieving children are prevented from allowing to mourn or express themselves that psychological maladies can develop that will affect them for the rest of their lives.

How bad will my postpartum depression be in 12 months? 'Game-changing' study uses four factors to accurately predict severity, longevity of postpartum depression

How bad will my postpartum depression be in 12 months? 'Game-changing' study uses four factors to accurately predict severity, longevity of postpartum depression | Grief & Bereavement Counseling | Scoop.it
A new study was able to successfully predict -- with 72.8 percent accuracy -- if a new mother would experience worsening depressive symptoms over the first year after giving birth. The scientists predicted this depression trajectory using four maternal characteristics that put the mother at risk. Identifying these factors early in the postpartum period will allow mothers to seek treatment earlier and improve their chance of a full recovery.
