Product Description


When I received a copy of the Grief Encounter workbook, I wept tears of joy and relief that someone understood what it felt like to lose someone. --Kevin Wells (Holly Wells' dad) from Soham

A rare combination: an expert in the field who cares deeply about children and whose personal journey provides the foundation on which the book is built. --Project manager, Place 2 Be

I have spent a lot of money on other books but this is the best- an invaluable book! --A healthworker

5.0 out of 5 stars Grief Encounter 15 April 2009
It was suggested to me that I read this material when a young boy at my school came to talk to me about the death of his father. I felt I needed more support in order to support him better. I'm still working my way through it!

5.0 out of 5 stars A beacon of optimism, help and support 22 Feb 2012
By Alex
When I first read this book I felt a huge sense of relief. The powerful examples of bereaved children's work, honest words and fun and exciting activities in the workbook are a fantastic way to promote conversations about death between children and adults which is often perceived as a taboo in British culture.

I would highly recommend this workbook to anyone who is in contact with/ is a bereaved child. My father died at 16 from cancer. I only discovered this book recently. I am now 21 and the ideas and thinking behind it have helped me beyond measure particularly the notion of a spiral of grief. This has changed my whole outlook on grief and bereavement.

Thank you!

5.0 out of 5 stars MUST HAVE for bereaved children 13 Sep 2011
The Grief Encounter workbook is a wonderful and thoughtfully designed interactive book for bereaved children and their parents.

I found it so helpful as a guide and companion for my child.

It's fun to fill in the different activities and the artwork and quotes from other grieving children help you and your child to not feel so alone with your feelings.

I would DEFINITELY recommend it for any parent who has a child suffering from the loss of a loved one.
