Written by Dianne McKissock OAM, one of Australia’s best known and respected bereavement counsellors, this CD contains five stories based on real life experiences of children at ‘A Friend’s Place’.
They provide opportunities for caregiving adults to facilitate aspects of grief frequently experienced by bereaved children everywhere. The common, empowering thread that links the stories and gives children hope is the availability of compassionate understanding, and the knowledge that they are not alone.
As with any books, CD’s or videos used by and for children, it is important that you, the adult, listen to the stories first and read the accompanying booklet so that you can process your own reactions before helping children.
