The Children’s Bereavement Centre offers a variety of training for professionals working with children and young people.  In response to the current COVOD-19 crisis and the effect this will have 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 “Communication through Play Training” and “Bereavement and Loss Training” later in the 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

Don’t wait for a crisis and then firefight – prepare and prevent! 

Would you like to increase your skills and knowledge to improve support for children and young people experiencing bereavement and loss?

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 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 getting you ready as a workforce to support the inevitable impact this will have 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.

Webinars will be available from mid-June – to find out more and book, please click on the links below.
