Description

This handbook is intended for volunteers and professionals who have received formalized training in the field of child and youth grief support. This handbook is to be considered a supplementary resource and in no way replaces formalized training. The information and activities included are intended to build upon a supporter’s existing toolkit and may not be applicable or appropriate in all situations. Supporters using this handbook should receive ongoing supervision by professionals at a reputable organization specializing in the socio-emotional support of grieving young people and their families. The wellbeing of children and youth is of utmost importance – considering the vulnerability of the population, we cannot stress enough the importance of training and professional supervision.
