Sunflowers: The Grief Recovery Method - Helping Children with Loss

Sunflowers                                               To book: 07792 374752       

Equip your team to help children with grief and loss

Are you seeing reduced concentration, temper, acting out, withdrawal, anxiety, reduced attainment? These are all commonly grief symptoms.

Are you keen to teach children emotional resilience? Equip them to deal with life? Learn what best to say when dealing with all kinds of loss? Enhance positive mental health?

The Helping Children with Loss programme is now available for the first time through us, a Gloucestershire based charity, SUNFLOWERS.

  • Suitable for both professionals and parents
  • Led by a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®
  • Certificate provided on completion
  • We can come to your premises
  • Course fees are 100% donation to Sunflowers

Why is this programme needed?

Children and teenagers encounter so many losses: death of relation, death of a pet, leaving parents, friendships, moving home, moving schools, moving countries, fostering, adoption, divorce, extended families, ill health, difficulty with studying, exam pressure, and so much more. We want to support you in recognising grief and grieving behaviours and give you the tools to be proactive in dealing with these daily in your setting.

Feedback from our recent programmes: 

“I have been given the skills to help the children I work with to deal and cope with all areas of grief”

“… changed some of my own ideas on how to talk with children”

‘. The whole group have learnt and enjoyed this course, from your experiences and teaching’

showing our emotions teaches children that feeling sad and seeing adults upset is ok’.

I have learnt a lot about myself. I now understand that it is not just death that causes grief”.
