The death of a child

Losing a child has major effects on the physical and mental health of family members. Few researchers in Québec have studied the development of clinical practices with respect to grieving parents. The Canadian Chair in Family Psychosocial Health and the Centre for Studies and Research on Family Health Intervention (CERIF) aim to explore the variations in experiences of bereaved families and to develop greater consistency between the needs of parents and children, and the services offered by health care institutions and service providers.
