Lisa respond to questions from around the world about protecting family mental health under Covid-19.

Helping Kids Manage Grief and Loss

“If the pandemic is about anything, it’s about loss,” says Dr. Lisa Damour. Grief can come in different forms – from losing a loved one, to mourning the loss of senior year in high school, to not getting into your favorite college. How can you tell if your child is grieving and what can you do to help? Lisa and Reena examine how to support our kids as they cope with loss. Reena shares how a bouncy castle rented on the morning of her grandfather’s funeral helped her family deal with loss. Lisa discusses insights from Sigmund Freud – written over one hundred years ago – that can be helpful as we find our way through the pandemic.
