Full Title
Mourning, memory/meaning, and moving on: a loss and grief seminar for high school youth
Author
Leonard L King
Abstract
This project seeks to help grieving teenagers to discover a holistic approach to life through two seminars, one conducted in a local high school and the other in a local church. Through biblical perspectives on blessing, honor, shame, and loss, particularly in the experience of King Saul, the project guides participants to identify and confront the influence of shame and dishonor during and after a loss. Signs of shame and dishonor manifested during the study are disguised by feelings of worthlessness, failure, embarrassment, and inferiority. Teenagers need to feel loved and accepted during a loss and to be welcomed into the faith community.
