A Handbook for Supporters: Extending Compassion & Care to Grieving Youth

Author(s)The Children and Youth Grief Network

This handbook is intended for volunteers and professionals who have received formalized training in the field of child and youth grief support. This handbook is to be considered a supplementary resource and in no way replaces formalized training. The information and activities included are intended to build upon a supporter’s existing toolkit and may not be applicable or appropriate in all situations. Supporters using this handbook should receive ongoing supervision by professionals at a reputable organization specializing in the socio-emotional support of grieving young people and their families. The wellbeing of children and youth is of utmost importance – considering the vulnerability of the population, we cannot stress enough the importance of training and professional supervision.
