Good Grief for Kids is a guided writing and art journal. As children work through their loss, they will learn more about themselves and about life. This resource helps children ages 6-12, and their families, work through their loss in meaningful ways. Good Grief For Kids is designed to teach children the basic concepts of death and to help them grieve and grow in healthy ways. The activities in this journal will act as a springboard for conversations, which will help clarify misconceptions and fears. As children illustrate their journal with their own personal story, communication is increased and coping skills are developed. The writing and drawing work children do in this book guides and supports them through a confusing and challenging time. As the child tells and illustrates their story, they become an active participant in working through the grieving process. Keeping a journal may support children in developing coping and other important life skills. The completed Good Grief For Kids journal serves as a personal keepsake that will help children remember someone very special in their lives.
In addition to journaling pages, the book includes a removable resource section for adults that includes:
•Developmental Stages of children’s understanding of death and loss
•What You Need To Know providing easy to understand information regarding children and grief
•Things To Do offering down-to-earth, practical suggestions in helping children cope with loss
•Connections- online resources
•Suggested Reading featuring age appropriate bibliography resources
*Children will need crayons, colored pencils, pencils, pens or markers to illustrate and record their story.
Good Grief For Kids is designed to provide adults a thoughtful, organized, easy-to-use and caring tool, using journaling and the art process, to help children cope with grief and loss.
