Dealing with bereavement and loss

18 December 2018

Safeguarding and duty-of-care training specialists, EduCare, has launched its Dealing with Bereavement and Loss course, in partnership with Winston’s Wish – the UK’s first childhood bereavement charity.

The course will help everyone to understand what needs to be in place in schools and colleges to support anyone involved with bereavement. 

The new course will cover aspects including the effects of grief on a child or young person; how a death may impact school life, and how information about the death should be shared with pupils and staff; how to manage potentially difficult topics and avoid unnecessarily painful comments when communicating with a bereaved pupil or student; and how to communicate with children and young people about tragic events in the media.
