The purpose of this project is to provide children and adolescents with a safe environment for discussing issues related to grief and loss. The literature review addressed the developmental and cognitive stages of children and adolescents experiencing bereavement and provided guidelines for support groups.
The proposed group will meet weekly for eight sessions at a school site and will expose children and adolescents to bibliotherapy as an intervention that incorporates books to provide participants with coping techniques to adapt to the loss of a loved one. Pre- and post-tests will be used to assess outcomes.
The program is intended to reduce feelings of sadness, enable participants to establish support systems for healthy communication of feelings, increase ability to manage emotions, and increase academic achievement. The program will thus address end of life issues that are often difficult for family members to address. The actual submission of the grant was not a requirement for this project.
