The Impact of Separation and Placement
In this module we will explore the impact of separation and placement when a child or youth is placed in out of home care. Utilizing evidence based research and best practices we will explore various concepts such as ambiguous grief and loss, the stages of grief and loss and how to identify them in children and youth, recommendations and best practices for visitation, and development of action plans.
