The Children’s Bereavement Centre offers a variety of training for professionals working with children and young people.  In response to the current COVID-19 crisis and the effect this is having on the wellbeing of children and young people and their ability to learn, we have worked in partnership with a leading expert on brain development to design specific age-related training programmes. These will be delivered by webinar for the first time. We also continue to deliver our hugely successful full day face-to-face  “Communication through Play Training” and “Bereavement and Loss Training” with new dates scheduled for next year.

Please see below for more details.

We can also tailor training to specific requirements for a very reasonable price and if you would like to explore this further, please get in touch.

Supporting children and young people through the COVID-19 crisis training

We recognise that supporting children and young people who are experiencing bereavement or loss in normal circumstances is challenging enough.  However, in the current COVID-19 crisis, feelings and reactions are heightened and more children and young people than ever before are affected by loss, whether actual or anticipatory due to fear and/or separation concerns.  All of this can affect their mental health and ability to learn.

Due to the current crisis ALL children and young people will be processing loss and/or separation. Our training is about upskilling you as a workforce to support the inevitable impact this is having on their wellbeing, particularly those who have experienced an actual loss.

Working collaboratively, we have created bite-sized webinars (4 hours in total) to support primary and secondary children and young people, delivered by experts in brain development and supporting children through loss. They will help to equip you with essential knowledge to understand what is going on in their heads and provide tools and strategies to help support their recovery and reintegration into school life. We are also able to offer a live follow up one-hour bespoke Q&A video session tailored to your specific needs, if required.
