Helping Children Grieve (Paperback)
A direct, yet sensitive guide for helping in the recovery and healing of children, from the very youngest of age up to teenagers and beyond.
Most children experience a certain level of order and happiness in their lives. Suddenly, when a child experiences profound loss or an unexpected death, their world is no longer "normal", and that stability is replaced with grief, confusion, and anxiety.
In Helping Children Grieve, Ruth P. Arent extends a bold yet gentle hand to hold during this most painful of life's experiences. Her practical and insightful exercises and stories — accompanied with her optimism and empathy — will help parents and caregivers nurture and assist the bereaved child.
With the right amount of patience and perspective, this book will help return the child to a renewed level of trust, spontaneity and hope for a future of wellness.
