“Grief is an emotional, physical and spiritual necessity, the price you pay for love. The only cure for grief is to grieve.” – Earl Grollman. Grief occurs when an individual responds to any kind of loss, whether it be unmet expectations, a missed job opportunity or a change in relationship status. Change, however big or small, often elicits grief - we mourn the loss and welcome the new. Families supporting gender-expansive youth often experience an incredible amount of change in a variety of unique forms. This change can look like anything from different name and gender markers, to shifting family dynamics, to a shift in how a parent views a child’s future. This workshop is designed specifically to create space for family members to explore the grief that may arise as they work to support their gender-expansive child. Participants will leave the workshop with a wealth of resources and tools to support them in processing their personal experience of grief.
