Abstract

To become a teacher it is important to have some knowledge about children’s grief. It is likely that you at least once will come in contact with a pupil who has lost a parent or a sibling. Than it’s important to know how we as adults/teachers can handle this problem. In this paper I have interviewed four different teachers who work at four different schools and they all have 25-30 years experience of their profession. I have asked them about children and grief. How can we as adults see, understand and help? How dose the school handle this situation?

Do they follow a special crises plan? And how were the reactions from the pupils in crises?

The literature shows that children’s grief can look different and it’s important too realise that.

My main conclusion is that its important too talk about death even with small children. Every school is helped with having a crises plan, the teacher has an important role for child who has lost a relative. Sometimes the school is the only place were there are no hysterical, crying people and were everything is as it used to be.

Keywords: reactions of grief, crisis plan in school, grief, dealing with grief in school
