Abstract

Numerous factors place Hispanic children at a greater risk of experiencing a traumatic event within their lifetime. Children may experience traumatic grief when trauma symptoms interfere with their ability to grieve the loss of a loved one. Child-centered play therapy (CCPT) is appropriate to use with culturally diverse clients and with children experiencing trauma and grief. This article provides an overview of childhood traumatic grief and the grief process in Hispanic culture. A case vignette illustrates the use of CCPT with a Hispanic female who experiences traumatic grief.
