Helping Children Cope With Grief

Translation missing: en.products.product.view_full_details

Children coping with grief often require support as they may lack the emotional maturity and coping skills to handle their feelings. For example, upon experiencing the death of a loved one, they might feel overwhelmed with sadness or anger. Providing appropriate support, including counseling and therapy, is important for helping them feel better.

The Helping Children Cope With Grief handout supports clients in their healing process by suggesting effective strategies for caring adults to follow. To make clients feel understood, the handout features the acronym SUPPORT with helpful explanations.

Through this resource, children and teens may feel validated in their emotions and receive personalized support. To ensure they can express their thoughts and feelings, consider pairing the tips from the handout with supportive activities. Encourage activities such as writing letters, creating memory bracelets, and expressing emotions through music or singing.

This handout can be found in our Grief And Loss Handouts Bundle, which includes 13 pages of psychoeducation and coping strategies to support individuals going through loss.
