Losing a sibling or even a parent can have a rather profound effect on a child. However, there are some deaths that can easily induce trauma in a child, specifically sudden and unexpected deaths. Two examples of such deaths are accidental deaths and murders, particularly where the child witnesses the accident or the murder. This chapter discusses what it is like to work with traumatically bereaved children and looks at the concept of ‘traumatic stress reactions’.

Keywords:   death, trauma, sudden and unexpected deaths, accidental death, murder, traumatically bereaved children, traumatic stress reactions
