Despite the context in which social workers might be working, they get confronted with children or families that face bereavement. Within the current Covid-19 pandemic the number of children confronted with death and bereavement has dramatically increased. Social workers therefore need to understand the impact of death and bereavement on children and be equipped with creative ways to help children make sense of these experiences.
- Understanding the impact of death and bereavement on the child
- Needs of children during bereavement (different developmental phases)
- Role of the social worker in working with children who have experience loss, death, and bereavement.
- Focus of bereavement therapy with children.
- Ethical considerations when working with children going through bereavement. The importance of clarifying and respecting the religious beliefs of the client.
Short demonstration / video of practical technique that can be used to explain death to children in a child friendly manner.
Who this course is for: Social workers, psychologist, and registered counsellors.
