My Recommended Resources to Help Bereaved Children and Young People

In today’s video I share my recommended resources to help children and young people who have experienced bereavement. 

This is the 5th part of our mini-series on bereavement, and I’m focusing on books that explore the subject of death using child friendly language, and also on online support from various organisations specialising in childhood bereavement.

The books can be read to younger children, or read alone by teenagers.  I also share a couple of fillable workbooks that help children express their thoughts and feelings.  All the books mentioned are listed here for you.

The websites of the various organisations I mention in the video are listed below in case you would like to visit them:
