To Heal Your Child’s Broken Heart, Start with Hope How can you help your child get through a deeply painful loss—the breakup of a family, the death of a pet, or even the passing of a loved one—especially when you might be dealing with your own grief? God sees your family’s pain and longs to walk through it with you. It’s one of the reasons He sent His Son, Jesus—to heal our broken hearts. Most important, God wants to give your child hope. Dr. Amy Ford is a licensed professional counselor, professor, and parent who specializes in complex psychological issues, including trauma and grief. She offers spiritual encouragement from God’s Word and expert advice to address your child’s specific needs. You will gain the wisdom, skills, and practical ideas you need to help your child during this difficult time. Grieving can be a long and difficult process, especially for children, but with God’s help and the loving support of friends and family, grief can give way to new life. Your child will get through this…and so will you.

Based on Alan Wolfelt’s six needs of mourning and written to pair with Companioning the Grieving Child, this thorough guide provides hundreds of hands-on activities tailored for grieving children in three age groups: preschool, elementary, and teens. Through the use of readings, games, discussion questions, and arts and crafts, caregivers can help grieving young people acknowledge the reality of the death, embrace the pain of the loss, remember the person who died, develop a new self-identity, search for meaning, and accept support. Sample activities include grief sock puppets, expression bead bracelets, the nurturing game, and writing an autobiographical poem. Activities are presented in an easy-to-follow format, and each has a goal, an objective, a sequential description of the activity, and a list of needed materials.

The period following the death of a friend or loved one can be tumultuous for anyone, but can be especially difficult for children, with lasting effects if the loss is not acknowledged or supported. This book emphasises the importance of listening to children and helping them to create positive bonds that can sustain them as they go through their lives. It provides practical, creative approaches to support children in their time of bereavement and to those whose loved one is dying. By recognising feelings of pain, anger, and confusion through open and positive discussions, a child is able to build emotional resilience and create enduring memories of the person they have lost. The author explains the importance of developing continuing bonds between children and loved ones in times of bereavement and offers practical ways in which these bonds may be nurtured through creative activities, memory making, and personal storytelling.

Drawing upon extensive interviews and assessments of school-age children who have lost a parent to death, this book offers a richly textured portrait of the mourning process in children. The volume presents major findings from the Child Bereavement Study and places them in the context of previous research, shedding new light on both the wide range of normal variation in children's experience of grief and the factors that put bereaved children at risk. The book also compares parentally bereaved children with those who have suffered loss of a sibling to death, or of a parent through divorce, exploring similarities and differences in these experiences of loss. A concluding section explores the clinical implications of the findings and includes a review of intervention models and activities, as well as a screening instrument designed to help identify high-risk bereaved children.

Preparing Your Children For Goodbye is a supportive guidebook for parents who are terminally ill. This book is divided into three parts: End-of-life issues to consider How children cope with death A Life Review workbook The book will help you plan for your own end-of-life care, prepare your children for your death, and record memories of your life. The book includes a Bibliography and a list of "Places to Turn To for Help." Your most important role as a parent is raising your child. All along, you are attempting to impart into them your values, as well as teach them the skills that they will need to be successful as they grow into adulthood. No parent expects to leave a child to journey through life without his or her direct guidance. As that day approaches, and you begin to accept that you will not have the time that you thought you would, the pressure mounts to prepare your child for the future. The process of looking back over your life and thinking about what has mattered most to you is a natural part of facing death. There is a formal discipline called "Life Review" in which people are encouraged to discuss and write down aspects of their past. This Life Review workbook is specifically designed for use by parents of children and teenagers. It includes questions to help you consider issues relating to your children, as well as more general questions that will trigger memories about other parts of your life. This Life Review process can be used by anyone who is interested in thinking about their own past, even if they do not have children. You can use the workbook on your own or with someone else. It's a nice activity for two people to do together using a conversational approach. An adult child could use the conversational method with an elderly parent. It can be an enjoyable way to reminisce about the past and capture memories. This type of conversational approach can be helpful as a tool to use with older people who are having memory problems. The workbook can be used in hospice settings by hospice volunteers to use with patients who want to reflect on their lives. If someone is too sick to take on a major writing project, the volunteer can ask questions from the workbook to help the person recall anything that they want to have remembered. A volunteer could also work with family members to explain life review ideas and introduce the workbook as something they can use on their own. Any parent who wants to record family history can also use this book. Perhaps you have a high-risk profession in an area such as law enforcement, firefighting, or serve in the military and are concerned about the future. Who hasn't thought, "What if?"
