About the Course
Even the most experienced staff can feel de-skilled in situations of bereavement; however the impact of offering the right help and support for children and young people is significant.
This workshop aims to explore various stages and types of grief as well as look into support you can offer when working with children/young people facing loss and bereavement.
This workshop is designed to build confidence, skills and knowledge. We hope that you will finish the training feeling more confident about how to support children and young people in your setting; that you will be more able to assess when a child or young person needs to be referred on to a specialist service; and that you will be encouraged to directly work with children and young people facing bereavement.
