Grief and Loss in the School Classroom
Why Interventions with Children are Important
(Even when relatives object) (From Ward,1996)
The evidence suggests strongly that the mourning of children- no less than adults- is commonly characterised by persisting memories and images of the dead person and by repeated recurrences of yearning and sadness, especially at family reunions and anniversaries, or when a current relationship seems to be going wrong.
