Lecturer practitioner Andrew Bagnall conducts a study day
Atlas: Communicating with Children who are Facing Bereavement

9:30am - Tuesday 9th April 2019, at Compton Care Learning and Development Centre

This study day is for those who want to understand more about how to communicate with children who are bereaved or who are anticipating a bereavement.

Communicating with children is at the core of caring for them at these difficult times. Play, behaviour and relationship are the earliest ways in which we communicate with those around us, and children facing loss and grief often turn to these means of communication in their endeavours to make sense of their new world.

During this study day, you will have a chance to learn and practice communication skills beyond the adult world of words and body language, so that you can communicate at the child’s level. Your new perspective will enable you to recognise when children do and don’t feel heard.

Ideally you will have completed our ‘Helping Bereaved Children’ introductory course as this provides a foundation in how loss impacts on childhood development, which is a key factor in how children communicate.

Target audience

All those who work in schools, community, health and social care with children

Cost

£40.00 (Free to school staff) To include lunch and refreshments, and certificate of attendance.

Time

9.30 – 15.30

Venue

Compton Learning and Development Centre, The Cedars, 39 Compton Road West, Wolverhampton, WV3 9DW.
