chapter  7
Counseling Approaches with Children and Adolescents
Pages 16

This chapter is really about attitude: our attitudes as we witness, comfort, educate, and normalize the process of healing from loss. It is about the sensitivities and understandings one can acquire when working in the presence of a grieving child. It is about what the children have taught us and will continue to teach us as we walk beside them in their journeys through grief. Our knowledge comes from their unique stories, their love, their anger, their courage, and the breadth and depth of their feelings.
