The Right Tools for Parents and Teachers

On average, most children will encounter 15 significant losses before they reach adulthood. The most common losses for children and teenagers include:

  • Loss of a grandparent
  • Loss of a pet
  • Moving
  • Divorce
  • Changing schools
  • Bullying
  • Having a close friend move away
  • Being rejected from their university of choice

As a parent, teacher, or professional who works with children, you have undoubtedly experienced that sinking feeling that occurs when children ask difficult questions about death and loss, or are experiencing sad and painful feelings.

Helping Children With Loss Training

We know how difficult it can be to find the right words to comfort a child. We don't want to say the wrong thing, but we also want to connect with the child and offer our support. Finding this balance is challenging if you don't have the right tools for the job.

In addition to the Open Ears programme, our Helping Children with Loss training course provides parents, teachers and anyone who works with children with the specific tools for helping a child of any age and/or ability level with a personal loss of any kind.

After completion of the Helping Children with Loss course, participants will have the confidence and the ability to communicate effectively with children and teenagers on the topics of grief and loss, as well as specific tools for helping a young person recover from bereavement. Find out more at
