Summary

This guidebook was developed for those helping children and teens who are grieving the loss of a family member or friend. The information presented was compiled from the stories and suggestions of those who have been through the grieving process. Following an introduction, the six basic principles about children and grief are presented. The various stages of grief are reviewed along with an explanation of how children of different ages grieve. Suggestions are provided on how to help a grieving child or adolescent. Signs are noted that may indicate professional help is needed. Pitfalls to avoid in the helping relationship are discussed, and common questions about children and grief are reviewed, including dealing with the spiritual aspects of death. A list of additional resources is included. (JDM)
