Overview:

How Do We Tell the Children?: A Step-by-Step Guide for Helping Children and Teens Cope When Someone Dies (4th Edition) : Many children's lives are touched by a serious illness within their families, and some will be faced with the loss of a parent or grandparent, or the death of a sibling or beloved pet. How can adults help young people cope with these losses? How do they explain and console in language that a child can understand? Dr. Daniel Schaefer, working with child psychologists and trauma experts, and drawing on more than three decades of experience with families in crisis, has written a practical guide for anyone who works or lives with children - parents, caregivers, counselors, or teachers - to respond to their inevitable questions about loss and change, life and death. He provides strategies to assist children with grief and trauma and offers time-tested advice and language that children can understand. Now in its fourth edition, this classic guide includes new material on: dealing with the traumatic stress of a large-scale catastrophe; handling the repercussions of school violence; helping grandparents manage as caregivers; advising employers about how to support employees going through a family loss. The book also features an expanded quick-reference Crisis Section with conversation scripts and up-to-date resources, including websites, publications, and support groups.
