A free 1-hour webinar delivered in collaboration with Sibling Support. We will explore sibling bereavement and the importance of supporting young people whose brother or sister has died. Often the focus and attention is on the parents/carers and siblings can become the 'forgotten grievers'. Working with Sibling Support we show the importance of recognising the grief experienced by siblings. 

Who should attend?

Suitable for any professional who works to support young people in a health or education setting.

Learning outcomes

You will:

  • Gain an understanding of the theories of loss and grieving in relation to siblings
  • Learn about the typical questions that might be raised and how to support
  • Gain an understanding of how to communicate with young people and what they need, depending on their age
  • Consider the issues and challenges from a sibling perspective
  • Gain information about Child Bereavement UK and resources available from Sibling Support

Cost: Free (supported by GSK)

We encourage prospective participants to consider their own experience of loss and how it might affect them during training. Our training is not usually suited to anyone who has suffered a recent, significant personal loss or bereavement.
