GLADNEY UNIVERSITY: The purpose of Gladney University is to equip clients and professionals with the knowledge they need to help provide positive and healthy outcomes for the children we serve. Gladney University provides adoptive parents with education and support before, during and after their adoption. This education and support helps Gladney provide the finest adoption experience possible, and its part of Gladney’s promise of family for life. Additionally, Gladney University provides medical professionals, counselors, social service advocates and community members with cutting edge continuing education programs by offering relevant and engaging, web-based and in person educational adoption and child welfare resources. Gladney is uniquely positioned to provide outstanding training to parents and professionals because of our 130-year history of serving families and children. Our staff is highly qualified, experienced and compassionate. This combination creates dynamic and very successful training programs.


Please join us on Tuesday, December 4, 1:00-3:00 PM for Addressing Grief and Loss with Children and Parents.

Grief is the common equalizer. We all experience grief and loss at some point in our lives, but many of us do not know how to process it. As counseling professionals, we often do not know how to help our grieving clients. In this presentation, we will discuss grief beyond the five stages, what's normal in grieving kids, grief during the holidays, and the mission of The WARM Place. Professionals will leave with an awareness of the realities of grief and practical tools and resources to help their grieving clients.
