Training and development Training for school and communities Training for school and communities Supporting Bereaved ChildrenTraining workshops for teachers in Primary & Secondary Schools in Forth Valley & North Lanarkshire (FREE) Loss, change and transitions are experiences that will affect most children at some point in their lives. Furthermore, 92% of young people report a bereavement of a close or significant relationship before the age of sixteen (Children’s Bereavement Network, 2014). Teaching and support staff are well placed to help children understand/cope better with feelings of grief, enabling them to learn from difficult life experiences such as bereavement. As part of Strathcarron’s commitment to having strong links with the community, we offer free Childhood Bereavement training to all primary and secondary schools in Forth Valley & North Lanarkshire. Workshops can be held at the school or at the hospice. The aim is to support the school to have a prepared response to supporting bereaved children and develop a bereavement policy.
