Child Bereavement Conference

Date: 2 February 2018
Venue:
All Nations Centre, Cardiff

Hosted by the Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health, this conference will be a mixture of lectures, presentations and case studies that will cover a broad range of elements of child bereavement, taking into account the latest research on the subject. The afternoon sessions will focus on child bereavement practices, and all sessions will have the opportunity for questions to the speakers.

Our Deputy Director of Bereavement Support and Education, Dr. Katie Koehler, will cover children’s understanding of death at different ages and include the needs of bereaved children in general and those of children with additional needs, including those on the autism spectrum in particular. How schools manage a death in the school community is so important and bereaved children and young people tell us that the way their school responds at such a difficult time is something they never forget. Katie will also therefore aim to consider what schools can do to support bereaved children within their care.
