How to Use our Grief Cards
We’ve had a lot of requests for grief resources recently, especially for older children and pre-teens. We know that grief is an extremely hard and sensitive topic to discuss, especially if you – the grown up – are grieving too.
We have developed our Grief Cards to help you discuss the topic of grief and loss with children in your care. Check out our steps below on how to use our Grief Cards and how to talk to children about grief. We’ll help you explain this process with visual cues and prompts, as well as teach some breathing techniques for those moments when emotions become heightened.
This pack consists of four sections:
- Stage Cards – these cards help to explain the six stages of grief.
- Prompt Cards – these cards help to facilitate healthy discussion around grief and bring feelings to the surface.
- Breathing Cards – these cards help to calm and ground.
- Fact Cards – including our Feelings Card – these cards help to explain and normalise the process and emotions of grief.
