[SPACE FOR GRIEF] Matters of Life and Death
Whole Family Bereavement Consultation.
The death or serious illness of a significant person can be devastating. For a child or young person it can often be hard to understand and can have a major impact on home, school life and relationships. Children and young people can benefit from having the right support and information along with opportunities to express and explore their grief, helping them to adapt to their changing situation and feel more confident with their new story.
Parents and carers often have many difficult questions on their minds when faced with a serious illness diagnosis or bereavement. You may be struggling to find words to explain to your children what is happening or perhaps are unsure of how much information to give. You might have concerns about how your children are feeling and how this might impact on their behaviour and emotional well- being, or just might want some reassurance that you are doing the right things.
The whole family bereavement consultation welcomes one, or all significant members of the family, and can take place at any point in the diagnosis or bereavement. These unique sessions provide:
A confidential space to explore the issues your family is facing.
A space to identify your own families’ strengths, resilience and abilities to support each other.
Expert advice and guidance on dealing with the death or serious illness of someone close
Signposting to services and organisations where relevant
Access to relevant information and resources
A Recommended Family Support Plan based on your individual needs
Whole Family Bereavement Consultations are provided on a single session basis, though extensions are available.
