Parenting a Grieving Child (Revised)
Language: en
Pages: 216
Authors: Mary DeTurris Poust
Categories: Religion
Type: BOOK - Published: 2015-08-01 - Publisher: Loyola Press
Whether it's a fish, a friend, or a family member, nearly every child will experience a loss in their early years, and the experience and feelings of a sad event can be confusing and scary. And when grief intrudes, children look to their parents and the adults in their lives to fix this pain, take away what they don’t understand, and show them how to handle their emotions. Parenting a Grieving Child provides practical and approachable resources for Catholic parents and other adult helpers who work with children to use the power and traditions of the Catholic faith to accompany children as they work through their grief in a healthy way. As author Mary DeTurris Poust points out, too often children are left out of the grieving process and their specific grief issues are not addressed, or are addressed in harmful ways. Children’s grief is real and powerful, and it needs to be acknowledged and validated by the adults who are accompanying them through the grieving process. Drawing from the traditions and practices of the Catholic faith, Parenting a Grieving Child provides the steps parents can take to help their child through one of life’s most difficult experiences.
Kinder und Jugendliche – ein Trauerspiel

»Kinder und Jugendliche – ein Trauerspiel«. Kinder sind doch kein Trauerspiel!, will man gegen diesen Titel einwenden. Doch in der provokanten Formulierung steckt zum einen die immer wieder zu beobachtende spielerische und manchmal leichte Art, mit der Kinder ihren Umgang mit Tod und Trauer gestalten. Zum anderen ist es an einigen Stellen nach wie vor ein Trauerspiel, welche Unsicherheiten bei Erwachsenen zu beobachten sind, wenn es darum geht, Kindern und Jugendlichen in diesem Kontext zu begegnen. Immer wieder wird aus gutgemeinten Gründen versucht, sie »außen vor« zu halten, was am Ende oft zu einer Ausgrenzung führt, die nicht selten wiederum Schuldgefühle bei Kindern begünstigt.Der kindlichen Frage danach, wohin wir einmal gehen, wird nicht selten mit der gleichen Unsicherheit und Ängstlichkeit begegnet, wie die Frage danach, woher wir kommen. Nach wie vor sind unvorteilhafte Beschönigungen zu beobachten wie zum Beispiel »Oma ist eingeschlafen«, und man fragt sich, wie diese Kinder eigentlich selbst beruhigt einschlafen können, nachdem sie erfahren haben, dass Oma nach dem Einschlafen eingegraben oder verbrannt wurde.Zum Glück gibt es aber auch vielfältige Angebote zum Thema trauernde Kinder und Jugendliche: Trauergruppen, Trauerreisen, Trauercamps, Trauerforen, Trauerseminare, Trauerliteratur. Doch sind es eher Erwachsenen, die Hilfe benötigen. Deshalb richtet sich dieses Heft nicht

Jahrelang hat Jeremy Canty für seine Romane sehr wohlwollende Kritiken bekommen. Aber von wohlwollenden Kritiken kann man nicht seine Gasrechnung bezahlen. Da muss man schon froh sein, wenn man sich genügend Gin Tonic leisten kann, um den eigenen Misserfolg unter den Tisch zu trinken. Doch als dann der Roman eines so verhassten wie untalentierten Rivalen eine Empfehlung in der populärsten Nachmittagssendung von Channel 4 bekommt, reicht es Jeremy. Von nun an kennt er nur noch ein Ziel: Erfolg um jeden Preis. Gemeinsam mit einem schwulen Bauarbeiter, einer depressiven Marketingexpertin und einer Domina im Dress einer blauen Plüschgiraffe zieht er in den Kampf für die wahre und gute Literatur: seine eigene. Kurzentschlossen heuert er als Senioren-Nanny bei der zuständigen Literaturredakteurin an. Doch in ihrem Haushalt wartet nicht nur ein greiser Schwerenöter, sondern noch der ein oder andere Fettnapf ... "Bestseller" ist eine herrlich britische Roman-Komödie: Rotzig, frech, unverschämt - und natürlich mit liebevoll verschrobenen Charakteren.

The second edition of this bestselling book is designed for mental health professionals, educators, and the parent/caregiver, this book provides specific ideas and techniques to work with children in various areas of complicated grief. It presents words and methods to help initiate discussions of these delicate topics, as well as tools to help children understand and separate complicated grief into parts. These parts in turn can be grieved for and released one at a time. A new chapter is included, called "Communities Grieve: Involvement with Children and Trauma." It includes information on The Taiwan Earthquake and how the community worked with children, a school bus accident in which 36 elementary school children witnessed the death of the bus driver that was driving and how the school system worked with these children and their families; a boy who was running on a cross country team and got hit by a car, which was witnessed by teammates; and how a non-profit community grief agency worked with family, school, and community. The last study is from the Oklahoma bombing and the outgrowth of a place for the traumatized children and how they still work with kids and family today. This chapter then contains

This book describes a range of effective ways to help children and families cope with major traumatic experiences such as community violence, war, and terrorist attacks.

Grounded in the latest knowledge on stress and coping, bereavement, attachment, and risk and resilience, and including much-needed tips for therapist self-care, this is an essential clinical resource and text.

Angela and Gracey were going to be "best friends forever" and make it into the same university as carefree first year students. But for Gracey, her Aboriginal heritage takes on a new significance. While Angela falls in love for the first time, Gracey is drawn into black politics and their friendship drifts apart. Then Angela discovers that she too has a heritage - one her family would sooner deny. The conflict of the past possesses the power to draw the friends together but it could as easily blow them apart forever. This novel concludes the trilogy, which began with award-winning Dougy and Gracey. James Moloney yet again shows why his novels are so much in demand as powerful narratives of contemporary Australian society.
