The day gives you advice, tools and resources to help you support children who are experiencing grief related to a death and other forms of grief (parents separating etc.) 

During the day you will learn a range of creative approaches (using the arts, movement, music etc.) to support children during difficult times

Ensuring a child has good mental health is just as important as ensuring they have good physical health.  

This training will provide you with the information and strategies to ensure that you can support pupils mental health following a bereavement.

This training will give you: 


* the confidence to talk to your pupils about death, grief and loss

* an understanding of the emotions they are experiencing

* an understanding of why they are reacting and behaving as they are

* the information and tools to support them through difficult times

* creative approaches to help children work through their grief and manage their emotions
