Bereaved Children

A Support Guide for Parents and Professionals

Author: Earl A. Grollman

Bringing together fourteen experts from across the United States and Canada, Bereaved Children and Teens is a comprehensive guide to helping children and adolescents cope with the emotional, religious, social, and physical consequences of a loved one’s death. The result is an indispensable reference for parents, teachers, counselors, health-care professionals, and clergy.

Topics covered include what to say and what not to say when explaining death to very young children; how teenagers grieve differently from children and adults; how to translate Protestant, Catholic, or Jewish beliefs about death into language that children can understand; how ethnic and cultural differences can affect how children grieve; what teachers and parents can do to help bereaved young people at school; and activities, books, and films that help children and teens cope.

"‘“In this much-needed book, a group of carefully chosen authorities explore with sensitivity and wisdom the complex problems faced by those young people whom Rabbi Grollman so correctly calls ‘the forgotten mourners’ . . . The authors have given us a work that is direct, thorough and—most of all—useful.” —Sherwin B. Nuland, M.D., F.A.C.S. author of How We Die, winner of the 1994 National Book Award
