Helping children respond to death

Helping children respond to death | Grief & Bereavement Counseling | Scoop.it
One woman has devoted her life to supporting young people as they grieve, writes Julie Power.
American Institute Health Care Professionals's insight:

Grieving children need healthy ways to respond to death.  Grieving children should be treated openly and allowed to express themselves.  It is when grieving children are prevented from allowing to mourn or express themselves that psychological maladies can develop that will affect them for the rest of their lives.
