Loss Awareness

Recommended Posts

On a recent course about supporting bereaved children in school it was apparent how many children of divorced parents suffer in a similar way. Teachers are working every day with significant numbers of children who are suffering the pain of loss, and exhibiting distress. Symptoms may be physical, feelings of anger , anxiety or fear. These emotional responses can detract from a student's ability to concentrate, relate to others and manage anger. Students who are unable to verbalise emotion may express negative feelings through behaviour. Should there be greater recognition and support in schools? If you teach in a school which employs a counsellor do you think this is of significant benefit to the students?
