Supporting children with grief and loss
We have all experienced changes during the pandemic and for many children and young people these changes will have involved loss, for example, missing friends and family or loss of freedom. For some learners they may have encountered traumatic events that threatened their sense of safety. Teaching children about the impact of loss, change and trauma can give important tools to deal with and recover from adverse experiences. Loss and trauma can be explored as part of learning through health and wellbeing. Some learners in the longer term may need access to targeted group work (for example a grief and loss small group programme).
