Helping Children Cope with Loss and Grief

Responding to Children's Concerns About Actual and Threatened School Violence: Suggestions for Parents -- Wisconsin Dept of Public Instruction
When a crisis occurs in a school setting, children may fear for their safety, the safety of their school, and the well being of their friends, classmates and teachers. Parents of young children may have questions: What do I say to my child? How do I respond to his/her fears? What is appropriate, and what might frighten her/him further?
Children and Grief -- American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
A guide for helping children with grief and loss.
Founded in 1986 in Cincinnati, Ohio, is a non-profit, non-denominational organization serving grieving children and their families. At Fernside, we know that the grieving child has the capacity to rebuild, so we gently encourage sharing of stories, feelings and memories with trusted friends, honoring each one's search for a new beginning.

Information about Hospice, Illness, or Loss

Hospice Foundation of America
A nonprofit organization that promotes hospice care and works to educate professionals and the families they serve in issues relating to care giving, terminal illness, loss and bereavement.
American Hospice Foundation
Our population is aging, healthcare is changing, and there is grief and violence at school and at work. In times of change and dwindling resources, the need for compassionate and comprehensive care for the sickest among us continues to grow. Grief and loss affect our children and our older citizens as never before, requiring understanding and skillful support. Life is precious indeed when it is measured in weeks or months, or when we feel the impact of its loss.
