This episode builds on our conversation with Dr. Atle Dyregrov on the topic of talking with children about death, where we focused mainly on death as a general concept and navigating the first few days after the death. Grief therapist Katie Lear has a new book called A Parent's Guide to Managing Childhood Grief and focuses on the much longer period of mourning that follows the death of someone close to a child. We look at:
  • The four 'tasks' of mourning that most people (including children) move through
  • Activities we can do in each task to help children navigate their feelings effectively
  • long the process usually takes
  • Signs that a child is engaged in 'complicated grief' and needs more support
  • Where and how to find that support
