A Child's Grief

60 minutes • Documentary • Produced in association with: The Bereaved Families of Ontario • Production year: 1995

Children express grief differently than adults, but their pain is just as real and their feelings equally as intense. To help children through the bereavement process, it is important that the adults around them be aware of what is going on inside their young minds. A Child’s Grief takes viewers into the lives of eight children in bereavement support group. We hear their stories, feel their pain, and share their tears – along with their laughter – as we witness their valiant struggles to come to terms with their losses.
