Supporting suddenly bereaved children and young people seminars

We are delighted to confirm that our essential 'Supporting suddenly bereaved children and young people' seminars will be returning with three dates in 2017. These vital events will feature a range of field leaders, academic experts and practitioners, and will be held on Tuesday 27 June in Manchester, Thursday 6 July in Birmingham and Tuesday 18 July in London. 

These crucial seminars provide an excellent professional development opportunity for all educators, support workers and counsellors working with suddenly bereaved children and young people. 

Topics covered at the events will include:
  • Cultural and religious issues that may be encountered when supporting suddenly bereaved children and families.
  • A discussion of the ways in which children and young people comprehend and understand grief.
  • Case study with a Brake bereaved volunteer, followed by a Question and Answer session.
  • An overview of practical provisions of support for children, young people and their families.
These seminars offer a vital training opportunity for all professionals caring for children and young people who have been bereaved. 

Attendance at one of these seminars costs just £71+ VAT per person. To book your place today, complete our

These events would not be possible without funding kindly provided by Slater and Gordon Lawyers
