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”.
Course cost £250 per delegate for 6-week course, with a 10% discount of bookings of 5 delegates or more. Costs can also be negotiated if your school host this course. For more information call Bekki 07792 374752 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
