Ethical Considerations for Working with Children Anticipating a Death

The process of dying presents many challenges to individuals and families impacted by a life limited illness or terminal diagnosis. When children are present and part of the immediate situation, family members and professionals sometimes are at a loss as to how to connect with, involve, or talk to children about the realities of the situation.

This webcast will explore the ethical implications of supporting children who are anticipating the death of a parent, the death of a sibling, or their own death.

Our three presenters will provide practical information and advice for caring for children in the face of a terminal diagnosis. They will share information about how to talk to children about death, how to include children in rituals, and ways to offer support throughout the dying process.

Learning Objectives:

1. Discuss how the anticipation of death affects children and teens.
2. Describe the challenges faced by children anticipating the death of a parent, sibling or their own death.
3. Provide ethically informed advice for caring for children in the face of a terminal diagnosis.
