The Learning Renaissance

Supporting Children with Traumatic Grief

I remember well being told when I was in primary school that a close friend and classmate had lost his mother at the weekend.

I’ve also had to deal with that as a form tutor, as well as the death of a child in my class.

I’ve felt bereft at such times, and so keen to empathise that I was at a loss as to what practical support I could offer in the circumstances.

This infographic from NCTSN sorts through some of the key issues and outlines practical ways to support a child suffering traumatic grief.

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
