A wealth of advice and helpful suggestions for those helping children through bereavement and loss.

Children who experience loss through death or separation need support and understanding, both at home and at school.

We often struggle to know what to say and how to provide this support. Staff in schools need to understand what to say and what to do, what might help and even what might not, and how to work with families.

This practical and accessible book gives an overview of different behaviours you may encounter in school and how to respond, as well as discussing questions children may ask and how to answer them.

Children’s understanding of death varies according to stage of development and the author provides guidance on age-appropriate, honest responses along with a toolkit of creative and arts activities to help children examine and understand their emotions, physical feelings and memories.

Sensitively written by a bereavement counsellor and therapist with extensive experience of working with children and their families, as well as training professionals in education, health and social care, this will prove an invaluable resource for all those working with children.
