Children in grief : Two pedagogues’ thoughts about how to meet children in grief. (English)
Abstract [en]

This study deals with children in grief. As this topic is so broad, I have chosen to limit myself to the study of children's different grief reactions, the school and the educator's role, as well as the differences in sorrow depending on gender. My study describes how two pedagogues lookat their treatment of children in grief in school activities. I have chosen to focus on children who have lost a loved one and how schools can best respond to these children.The purpose of the study is to highlight the schools' and teachers'role in helping children in grief. I have done this partly by conducting two semi-structured qualitative interviews with pedagogues and taken note of the current research and literature of the field.

The conclusions I came to was that the schools' and teachers' treatment of children is of utmost importance. This is because the children at home might not get the support they require when the rest of the family is busy with their own grief and that the teacher is the adult, outside of the family, who knows the child best and also have the knowledge of how children work.The literature also highlighted how important it is that there is a plan of emergency at the school for how to respond and act when a child is in mourning.
