Grief Education and Consultation

The death of a baby or young child is a devastating experience for families and the professionals who serve them.  Health professionals who are knowledgeable about parental grief provide assistance to newly bereaved families in many settings.

The Sudden Infant and Child Death Resource Center provides educational programs designed to sensitize professionals and the community to the needs of bereaved families.  Specialized programs for healthcare professionals, law enforcement officers, emergency medical personnel, funeral directors, clergy, physicians, nurses and social workers stress culturally sensitive, family-centered services.
