- The National Alliance for Grieving Children

- The Center for Loss and Life Transition
The Center for Loss is dedicated to "companioning" grieving people as they mourn transitions and losses that transform their lives. We help both mourners, by walking with them in their unique life journeys, and both professional caregivers and lay people, by serving as an educational resource and professional forum.
- Centering Corporation - Your Grief Resource Center
The Centering Corporation is a non-profit 501(C)3 organization dedicated to providing education on grief and loss for professionals and the families they serve. Centering Corporation was founded in 1977 by Joy and Dr. Marvin Johnson. When Joy and Marv started 31 years ago they developed nine little coloring books for hospitalized children and two workshop offerings for nurses and families. Over time, this evolved into what is now called Patient Education. Centering Corporation has done remarkably well in the industry, with now a compilation of over 500 resources for grief and loss including our own magazine Grief Digest. We continue to provide educational offerings, bookstores, and workshops for caregivers and families, with a heritage of becoming the largest provider of resources for Grief and Loss in the nation.

- LIVE WEBCAST: Students & Grief -- How to Deal with Loss in School
Death and grief will affect the lives of almost all children at some point, often leading to struggles with academic performance, social relationships, and behavior. The death of a loved one is immensely challenging for anyone, but children and teens can find it particularly difficult.
Scholastic.com, through the generosity of the New York Life Foundation, hosted a live, interactive webcast on the subject of Children and Grief. Using actual scenarios from children and parents, childhood grief expert, pediatrician, and author Dr. David Schonfeld, MD, and Chris Park, president of the New York Life Foundation, talked about misconceptions, and imparted valuable advice on how educators and all other caring adults can best support grieving children--whether it's right after the loss or years later.
