Cultures of grief: bereavement in young people’s worlds

Childhood bereavement networkLondon, May 2nd.

How can we best support grieving children across different cultural backgrounds? How is bereavement tackled in cultural forms – books, music, films and social media – for children, young people and families?

Book now for the Childhood Bereavement Network’s 2013 conference to hear key speakers and discuss with colleagues how culture and grief interact in the lives of children and families, and what this means for the services supporting them.
