This presentation will examine the additional strain, stress and complexity imposed on a relationship following the death of a child/young person. There will be an examination of the reasons for this, the common pitfalls that couples can fall into and things to be mindful of as practitioners in this field. Theoretical input about grief as it pertains to this area will be  touched on and some techniques and strategies in working with bereaved couples to consider.
