Grief is difficult.

Yet, it is something that everybody has to experience at one time or another. Grief is a part of life, though something we would like to avoid. Like all societal issues, grief eventually comes to school. What do we do when a school is grief stricken? This book is written to help school counselors, teachers, and administrators know how to respond when grief affects a school. Includes parent/teacher helps for different ages, a story to share with children, outlines for counseling sessions and activities for individuals or small groups.
