Helping Children Deal with Loss

Grief is normal and natural so why is it so hard to know what to do?


Whether you are a parent, a teacher or otherwise involved with children you will know that sinking feeling when questions are asked about sad and painful feelings. Often we are left struggling for the right words, not least because we ourselves don't know what to do either.


Child bereavement hit the headlines recently when HRH Prince William quoted and echoed his Mother, Princess Diana when he described "grief is the most painful experience"


Whether the child in your care has been bereaved, is about to face bereavement or they have experienced other significant emotional losses following divorce, house moves, changing school, being adopted, fostered, bullied or a myriad of other losses having the correct information at your fingertips can make a significant difference to their progress and well being.


This programme, for adults, will teach you how to communicate with the children in your care about losses they have experienced and those they yet might face. Led by Ian Henderson (Forest Ian) a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist this programme uses the "When Children Grieve" as the text book as you work through the process step by step over 6 weekly sessions.
