Supporting the Sandwich Generation: Helping Families Cope with Grief & Loss
Across the nation, approximately 11 million "Sandwich Generation" caregivers simultaneously attend to the needs of their children and an aging loved one while balancing a career, household, and their own health.

In this new series, Certified Child Life Specialist Shani Thornton, MS will address how loss and grief uniquely affect Sandwich Generation caregivers and their families. In these three sessions, learn more about the nuances of grief, understand how death and loss impact children of different developmental stages, and develop skills for fostering healthier familial relationships and coping mechanisms. The series is designed to equip Sandwich Generation caregivers with tools to:
• Identify different types of grief and the nonlinear process
• Reflect on and appreciate that individual members in a family will respond differently
• Model healthy coping skills for children
• Communicate more effectively to encourage stronger family solidarity

• Session 1: Grief Overview
• Session 2: Family dynamics
• Session 3: Coping with the Emotions of Grief
