This handbook is designed as a resource for people involved in palliative care services and for others involved in the care of the dying and bereaved. I hope it will become a valuable resource for those who are currently leading, or planning to lead, support groups for bereaved children.
Children’s bereavement support groups have many similarities to adult support groups and to support groups with a different focus. They also have many differences which will be highlighted in this handbook. The material is presented in clear and simple form so that those who are new to the experience of facilitating children’s grief support groups will have clear guidelines to follow. Once confidence has been developed, you will be encouraged to be creative by developing strategies that are relevant to your participants, your skill level, and your geographical area.
This is a quote from a reviewer…..
“It’s very impressive! I like the fact that it’s really, really professional yet still incredibly down-to-earth and approachable.”
