Event description
Childhood Bereavement training

About this event

This training is based on the Childhood Bereavement Network ‘Teenage Grief’ resource pack and draws on the experience of the Sunflower Project over the last 6 years. It is aimed at anyone working with young people. Bereavement in children and young people is more frequent than many people think.

1. UK statistics suggest 78% 11-16 year olds in one survey said that they had been bereaved of a close relative or friend

2. By the age of 16 around 1 in 20 young people will have experienced the death of one or both of their parents. (Harrison and Harrington, 2001).

3. Our experience at the Sunflower Project suggests that Guernsey is not very different from the UK.

Aims and Objectives

1. increase your awareness of the issues surrounding bereavement and young people

2. to help you feel more confident about supporting young people

3. to tell you where you can get additional help
