About the Supporting Grieving Children Course
It’s natural to want to protect children when someone they love dies; however, we need to talk to children to help them feel safer and more in control. The best thing to do is to provide them with honest, age-appropriate information about death. It’s painful to see a child upset, but children cope better with sad news when they are told the truth. Helping children understand death and grief will vary depending on the child’s age and developmental stage.
This course was originally created in response to the Covid-19 pandemic but has since been updated and is offered as a free resource to anyone who wishes to learn how to support children who are grieving due to the loss of a loved one or who may have experienced multiple losses due to a tragic event.
