Short Course Overview: Supporting Children and Adolescents Experiencing Grief and Loss

This Online Short Course will consider loss and grief from the perspective of the needs of grieving children and adolescents. Young people have different needs to adults when they experience loss. Adults who provide care and support need to be sensitive to these unique needs. This course will explore the developmental changes in childhood and adolescence and a range of support strategies that can be effective when supporting grieving children and adolescents.

Learning Modules: at the Conclusion of this Short Course, participants should be able to:

Understand grief and loss theory as it impacts upon the lives of children and adolescents
Identify the impact and developmental needs of grieving children and adolescents and appreciate children’s concepts of death and how this impacts the grief process at different stages
Identify effective strategies when providing support to grieving children and adolescents
Understanding the development of the brain and an overview of trauma

Course Structure:

The structure of this course is self-paced learning.

Within the course, you will find four pre-recorded modules that go for roughly an hour each.
These are to be watched in your own time within the four week period.
 
The only set time which forms part of the course is the one-hour live Zoom Q&A in the last week of the course.
The timing of this will be provided upon course commencement.
 
More information including your login for LearnBook (online course platform) will be sent a few days prior to the course starting.
You will then have access to the platform, so you can make yourself familiar with it, ready for the modules to launch on the course commencement date.
 
Assessment: 

Students will need to engage with each module and complete the learning opportunities along the way. Whilst no formal assessment is required to complete the course, students will be required to score an average of 80% or above in the multiple choice quizzes to receive a certificate of completion to claim the 10 OPD points offered by the ACA.
