Whether it's the grief of bereavement, the strain of divorce or the
uncertainty of a new home or school, loss and change affect
children in countless ways. Nevertheless, teachers and parents
frequently find themselves ill-equipped to help children struggling
with the difficult feelings that these situations, and others like
them, bring. Helping Children Cope with Loss and Change offers
guided support for teachers, health professionals and parents.
Designed for use with children aged 4-10, this guide offers: Case
studies illustrating various signs of grief and loss, to help the
caregiver spot and manage a child's pain. Therapeutic stories
designed to be read with the child, and with prompt questions to
encourage discussion. Creative activities and exercises that can be
developed into a therapeutic 'toolkit' to support the child and the
caregiver themselves. With chapters that move from Loss and Change
to Resolution and Resilience, addressing the needs of both the
child and caregiver, Helping Children Cope with Loss and Change
will be an invaluable therapeutic tool.
