Talking with Children and Young People about Death and Dying is a popular resource designed to help adults talk to bereaved children and young people. Mary Turner explains the various aspects and stages of bereavement and offers useful insights into the concerns of children experiencing grief or facing an imminent bereavement. She addresses children's common fears and worries, dreams and nightmares, and acknowledges the effect of trauma on the grief process. This second edition includes a new section for adults on understanding the distress of a bereaved child and also a list of useful contacts.

It is a fully photocopiable workbook that enables adults to deal with these issues sensitively and explains, for example, how to choose appropriate words to support the child. It will empower and equip adults working with bereaved children to encourage them to communicate their pain and understand the often contradictory emotions aroused by the death of someone close to them.

"'Many adults find it hard to talk to children about death. Too often the myth continues that "the kids are okay" and so they are not helped with the pain of bereavement. This workbook gives them an opportunity to air their concerns, and fears....[It is] an invaluable aid to anyone caring for a child.' - 'This is a highly recommendable book as it covers all aspects and "stages" of bereavement and concludes with sections on reminiscing and moving on.' - European Journal of Psychotherapy, Counselling & Health 'Designed to be used as a basis for opening discussions, the book...can be read by both child and adult simultaneously - each page is illustrated with pictures that hold the young person's interest and trigger ideas.' - Young People Now"
