Summary "This book is an essential guide for all members of a school community and other professionals who need to know how to be supportive in times of crisis, including social workers, psychologists and bereavement specialists. Whilst the emphasis of many books about young people and loss and grief has been on how to support them as individuals in a family context, this book takes a different approach and uses 'the school community' as the organizing supportive framework. This approach recognizes that losses are embedded in a young person's social environment - the school and its community - as well as the family. The theoretical orientation utilized is that death and all loss experiences are interpreted through social interaction and experienced within a social context. The book is firmly based on theory, research and practice
It breaks new ground in demonstrating the components in a school that can be used to support grieving individuals in times of personal crisis and to support whole school communities when traumatic incidents occur. Within this comprehensive approach attention is given to the needs and experiences of personnel - teachers, students, school leaders and parents - as well as school policies and programmes and links with outside services."--BOOK JACKET
