About this event

The Anna Freud Centre is announcing a series of free webinars aimed at all early years practitioners.

This webinar will look at - Supporting bereaved children in early years settings

It will take place on May 13th at 16:30 - 18:00

We decided to run this event because the early years practitioners we consulted rated bereavement as a key issue they would like support with.

For most young children, coping with the loss of a loved one will be a challenge that they are not prepared for. For some it may be traumatic, confusing, saddening or unsettling.

The webinar:

This webinar will offer early years workers clear and practical guidance on how they can manage the needs of children in their care who have experienced some kind of loss or bereavement. It will look at the different reactions young children may have, and explore a range of ways that you may be able to help them make sense of their feelings and experiences, and help them through what they may be going through. The webinar will also put forward practical ideas and resources that an early years setting might like to use to support them.


Who is this webinar for?

The event will be open to anyone in the early years sector interested in attending. All early years practitioners are welcome including nursery managers and workers, childminders, children centre managers and any other childcare practitioners.
