Mosaic offers training to organisations and individuals who may need to support a bereaved child or young person.
‘Not knowing what to say' is the most common statement we hear from those who support bereaved children and young people. Our training aims to tackle this, amongst many other things, with a balance of theory and practical, creative ways to enable you to provide support at an emotional time.
Approximately 2,500 children in Dorset will suffer a bereavement of someone close to them every year. Often children will not know who to turn to during this difficult time and can feel very isolated from their peers. Our training will help you to feel more confident in talking to and supporting a bereaved child, which will be incredibly valuable to both the child and their family.
Although many of the delegates who attend our training are currently supporting a bereaved child or young person, it is really important that all professionals working with children have some form of bereavement training before it is actually needed. That way they will know in advance what to say and how to support those children in their time of need, ensuring a consistent level of support should a death occur.
