Working with Bereaved Children


Every one of us will, at some point in our lives, experience a significant loss and have to suffer the grief and bereavement that ensues. This course will provide a useful platform for raising staff awareness of the issues and complexities of working with bereaved children and young people, prompt further discussion and planning around their needs, and give confidence in how to converse with, and give support to, a bereaved child or young person.

Courses coming up

More dates/venues coming soon.

Brief overview of the course

This course will help you understand the process both in terms of how we cope as adults, but also how children and young people manage loss.

We will look at:

  • What constitutes grief and how the grieving process works
  • What happens when ‘good grieving’ doesn’t take place
  • How to understand the emotions released during bereavement
  • How and what conversations we should have with bereaved children and young people

Target audience

This course is of relevance to all staff who have regular contact with children and young people in all age settings.

Delegate resource pack will include

The course includes a workbook and DVD to enable delegates to take their learning back into their setting for reminder purposes or for sharing with colleagues.
