Grief in the Family

Grief in the Family

DVD2002 14 Minutes

This animated film looks at the ways children and young people respond to grief, and how people can help.

When someone dies, life for those who were close to them will never be the same again. Bereavement is particularly hard for families. At a time when children are in need of extra support, so are their parents and carers. This animated film by Leeds Animation Workshop looks at the ways children and young people respond to grief, and what adults around them can do to help. It gives parents and carers an insight into the process of grieving, its physical and emotional effects, and the special needs of children and young people. Stressing the importance of listening to children and answering their questions honestly, it encourages the development of communication and a supportive family environment. Includes a booklet containing background information. Available with subtitles for deaf people.
