Recent years have seen increasing interest in the needs of children facing bereavement, and a corresponding increase in services to support them. This book addresses and explains the theoretical concepts and practical implications behind the idea of brief work with bereaved children and families. Flexible and accessible short term services delivered at the right time underpin the strengths of bereaved children, supporting their recovery rather than pathologising the grief process.In this way the book also speaks to the current interest in the concept of resilience and working with families' strengths and possibilities, rather than merely identifying their problems.This second edition continues to be a unique book within the growing filed of childhood bereavement, and the new chapters added to this edition discuss managing situations with learning disability, supporting very young children and emotional literacy. The book also presents cases from the service user's perspective. It looks at different approaches to intervention, such as the importance of assessment and the value of groupwork, and also covers work with children and families before a death.Brief interventions with bereaved children will appeal to practitioners, educators and service providers managing scarce resources. The editors have more than twenty-five years experience as practitioners within the field, as service providers and educators. The book features chapters from distinguished contributors with backgrounds in healthcare, education, social work and the police, alongside theoretical and practice-based chapters from workers in the field of bereavement care forchildren.

Use of Bibliotherapy as an Adjunctive Therapy with Bereaved Children

Use of Bibliotherapy as an Adjunctive Therapy with Bereaved Children

Bibliotherapy, the use of books in treatment, can enhance traditional grief support programs by normalizing the grief experience and reducing feelings of isolation, as well as allowing children to approach trauma indirectly.

Abstract: Loss of a loved one has serious consequences for children and can disrupt development and school, social, and family functioning. Creative interventions for helping children cope with loss can facilitate the progression of grief and are associated with improved functioning. Bibliotherapy, the use of books in treatment, can enhance traditional grief support programs by normalizing the grief experience and reducing feelings of isolation, as well as allowing children to approach trauma indirectly. The purpose of this project was to identify a potential funding source and write a grant proposal to develop bibliotherapy programs at two Sonoma County hospice organizations that provide grief support programs for school-age children. The project would assemble libraries of developmentally appropriate books at Hospice of Petaluma and Memorial Hospice, and provide training in bibliotherapy for bereavement counselors in the area. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not required for the completion of this project.

Child life is a profession that draws on the insights of history, sociology, anthropology and psychology to serve children and families in many critical stress points in their lives, but especially when they are ill, injured or disabled and encounter the hosts of caregivers and institutions that collaborate to make them well. Children and their families can become overwhelmed by the task of understanding and navigating the healthcare environment and continue to face challenges through their daily encounters. It is the job of child life professionals to provide care and guidance in these negotiations to serve as culture brokers, interpreters of the healthcare apparatus to family and child and the child to medical professionals. Despite the best efforts to provide quality, sensitive psychosocial care to children and their families, they remain vulnerable to lingering aftereffects. The goal of this revised edition is to help prepare child life specialists to deliver the highest level of care to children and families in the context of these changing realities. Each chapter has been substantially revised and two new chapters have been added. This book will be a valuable resource for not only child life specialists but also nurses, occupational and recreational therapists, social workers and other hospital personnel.

When a parent or parental figure is diagnosed with an illness, the family unit changes and clinical providers should consider using a family-centered approach to care, and not just focus on the patient coping with the illness. Helping Children and Families Cope with Parental Illness describes theoretical frameworks, common parental illnesses and their course, family assessment tools, and evidence-supported family intervention programs that have the potential to significantly reduce negative psychosocial outcomes for families and promote resilience. Most interventions described are culturally sensitive, for use with diverse populations in diverse practice settings, and were developed for two-parent, single-parent, and blended families.
