Brief Interventions with Bereaved Children

Linda McEnhill

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the concept of ‘resilience’. It is not completely clear what this might look like in bereaved people and especially in children with learning disability (LD). This chapter also includes an attempt to define learning disability and clarify what it ‘is not’, especially in relation to bereavement. Issues related to bereavement and disability and considerations about how to help children with LD enhance their personal identity and their ability to manage the crisis of bereavement are presented in this chapter as well.

Keywords:   resilience, bereaved people, learning disability, LD, bereavement, personal identity, crisis
