Supporting Children through Loss and Bereavement
Thursday 10 October 2019 – Mercure Southgate Hotel, Exeter , 09:00 – 12:45
“Sorry for your loss” is a comment we often hear, and sometimes use ourselves, when we are in a situation where someone has experienced a loss or bereavement. Usually well intentioned and mostly kind – we are usually left feeling awkward and wishing we could say or do more.
Schools can often be the one constant in a child’s life when they have suffered a loss, and this seminar will look at different ways a school environment can provide the support children need. Simon Thomas will share his and his son’s personal experience of loss, alongside local charities sharing case studies from the perspective of young people. This seminar will give you the tools needed to help children and their families through these difficult times, as well as build whole school awareness.
