The relationship with a parent or primary caregiver is critical to a child’s sense of self, safety, and trust. However, children experience the loss of a caregiver, either permanently due to death, or for varying amounts of time due to other circumstances. Children may develop posttraumatic responses when separated from their caregiver. This workshop provides information and suggestions on how to help children who experience traumatic separation from a caregiver.
