Gabrielle discussed the need to be aware of bereavement within and around transition services for children and young people and to support young people who may be experiencing this.
Gabrielle discussed the vision of the UK Child Bereavement “Child Bereavement UK believes all families should have the support they need to rebuild their lives when a child grieves or when a child dies. Our mission is to ensure the accessibility of high quality child bereavement support and information to all families an professionals, by increasing our reach, plugging the gaps that exist in bereavement support and training, and embedding standards in the sector.”
Gabrielle went on to discuss some of the theory behind the process of bereavement and what professionals might need to be aware of in this process. Gabrielle left us with some key messages, which were:
• Understanding, love and sensitivity
• To be involved
• Opportunity to express feelings
• To revisit their grief as they become older
