Know what grief looks like


“Sadness, worry, anger, apathy, confusion, fear, guilt, regression—these are all natural reactions to loss,” says psychother­apist Sarah Roffe, L.C.S.W., cofounder of Kind Minds Therapy in New York City. School-age children may experience stomachach­es and headaches, have nightmares, and/or have a hard time sleeping or concentrat­ing. They may also act out death during playtime. Teens may withdraw or take more risks in an attempt to regain control.
