Helping children with loss: The Grief Recovery method

Starts Friday 10 November

This six-week programme is for parents and carers and will help you communicate with children in your care about losses they have experienced and those they might face in the future.

As a parent or a significant person in a child’s life you may be familiar with the feeling of not knowing what to say when questions are asked about sad and painful feelings. This could leave you struggling for the right words or actions to take. Whether your child is experiencing a bereavement, or other significant emotional loss – following divorce, house move, changing school, or being bullied – the Grief Recovery method will give you the tools to make a significant difference in their progress and wellbeing. The programme covers trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The programme is led by a certified grief recovery specialist, using techniques from the book When Children Grieve.

Session 1: Friday 10 November 1-2.30pm. Subsequent sessions Fridays 12.30-2.30pm.
The Curve, 10 Bard Road W10 6TP
