Has your child lost a parent or loved one either through death or divorce?

This session is designed for carers of children of all ages. It will provide you with strategies to alleviate direct stress from your child’s life. There is a wide misconception that young children do not feel grief and so do not need assistance when they are bereaved by their loss. This session will give you a view of what to say and what not to say to your child through difficult times.

Topics include:

  • Understanding the grieving process and all the emotions that come with it
  • Managing the physical symptoms that your child may display in a time of loss
  • Guidelines for supporting your stressed child and signs and symptoms of stress
  • Way to develop both yours and your child’s skills to assist them through any future loss or stresses

Although this may be a difficult time for you, you need to know your child will cope with their loss. This session will offer you responsive ways to care and reassure your child that everything will be OK.

MPS Training Focus Sessions are designed for optimal discussion and interaction. Our trainers use current effective facilitation techniques to ensure all learning styles and thinking preferences are addressed to ensure every unique learner achieves the key learning outcomes: 

  • Exploring ways to communicate openly about the death/divorce with your child
  • Handling the resurgence of emotions that will come further down the track, and using  effective communication to increase emotional support
  • Guiding your child to move forward and acknowledging the reality of the situation
  • Employing strategies to ensure your child does not feel the need to take on a parental role.
