Complex mourning in untimely loss of a sibling in childhoodOctober 21, 2017
Led by Sharon Williams, LCSW
9 a.m. to noon
Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis, 122 S. Michigan Ave., suite 1300
The loss of a sibling evokes powerful complicated feelings in a child and can affect development and functioning across the life cycle. The child may experience survivor guilt, and family relationships as well as the child’s role in the family may change. The developmental age of the child, as well as the nature of the loss, influence the response to the loss. This workshop will provide an overview of the impact of sibling loss, illustrated with case vignettes.
Sharon Williams has been a therapist with Barr-Harris Children’s Grief Center and site coordinator at the center’s Little Company of Mary Hospital branch in Evergreen Park for 16 years.
