Child Bereavement and Loss

Did you know that up to 7% of children experience the death of a parent by the age of 16?

Evidence suggests that grief can manifest itself in regressive, disruptive behaviour, particularly in educational settings.

Within a school environment it is likely that staff will encounter pupils dealing with loss or other traumatic events. An awareness of the  fundamental principles of loss grief and bereavement can assist in the effective  management of such situations and ensure the optimum care of the children involved.

Sarah Owens is pleased to be able to share her knowledge with all levels of teaching and support staff by providing a theoretical overview of the key principles of loss, grief and bereavement. Sarah has significant experience within a palliative care environment where supporting young people is commonplace.

Sarah is a qualified nurse and has worked in palliative care for 18 years.  She now lectures in Nursing at the University of Salford.  Sarah brings a wealth of  experience plus a personal passion for this topic and is highly regarded in this field.
