Helping Children with Loss Programme

A four week course to help you learn how to support your child or children in your care through their grief and challenging emotional events. This course is suitable for parents/grandparents/carers, teacher and other professionals.

Jill Attree is a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist providing evidence-based programmes to support people who have experienced significant emotional loss. The Helping Children with Loss programme will give you the tools to support children of any age through emotional loss of any kind - bereavement, divorce, adopted/fostered/look after children, victims of Domestic Abuse, regardless of whether the loss is expected or has already happened.

Parents: You will learn the step by step tools to support your child.  Loss is an inevitable part of life yet most of us were not taught what to do when it happens to us or those close to us.  This 4 week programme will increase your confidence when talking to your children about sad or painful feelings.  Call to find out more about how it can help your specific circumstances.

Teachers/Other Professionals: This ACE'S informed 4 session programme will give you the confidence and skills to recognise symptoms of unresolved grief and loss as well as equip you with what to do and say to support them effectively.  Call to find out about bringing the programme to your workplace or for details of our next open programme.
