The UK Trauma Council have released free traumatic bereavement resources, (supported by the Anna Freud centre) including animations to help those supporting pupils and students, alongside other resources for those working in a clinical setting. In addition, The Anna Freud Centre early years team have produced a booklet to help those working with young children and families who have been bereaved.
Traumatically bereaved children and young people experience significant distress and difficulties, over and above a more typical grief. Traumatic bereavement can be easily missed or misunderstood by parents, teachers and even bereavement practitioners, meaning that children’s difficulties are not recognised.
These resources will give school staff and practitioners the knowledge and tools they need to identify, help and support children and young people experiencing a traumatic bereavement.
