Alison Penny from the Childhood Bereavement Network and Rachel Smith from Cancer Focus delivered a workshop on Bereavement & Pre-Bereavement Work with Young People for Lottery funded EYP grant holders, on behalf of NCB, on 29 September 2020.
This workshop -
discussed talking about bereavement, pre and post, with young people
explored the best language to use
shared young people’s thoughts and wishes around the way they would like to be treated when facing bereavement and loss
The aims of this workshop were:
that participants would have new skills and feel more confident in their capacity to speak about death and to communicate with children and young people when they are facing a bereavement
that participants would know where to go for support in this area.
