Brief Interventions with Bereaved Children

Oxford University Press

It is said that the death of a loved one or a close acquaintance can have a rather profound effect and serve as a challenging experience for a young person. As such, there have been a number of services set up over the last twenty years that provide support to bereaved children and their families. This chapter discusses the philosophy behind the development of childhood bereavement services, as well as the specific policy context in England and the current provision.
