LOSS, GRIEF AND HEALING - A PROCESS For Elementary and Secondary School Students
This book provides scenarios of loss, grief and healing for elementary and secondary school students. Any change, minor or major, creates a loss. Specific examples provide the reader with a six-step process of identifying the loss and working through the transformation to true healing. Each step has a rationale followed by concrete activities which may be applied to elementary school students and specific activities for secondary school students. Each activity includes key questions. The questions help prompt the students to engage in the healing process.
In the process of healing, there is always course correction. Even under the best of circumstances we find ourselves drifting in the wrong direction. Experiencing loss can be an emotional magnet pulling us off course without warning. If we do not alleviate the feeling of loss through a healing process, the loss will map the course of our lives for us. This six-step process, taking us from loss to transformation charts the course for healing.

LOSS, GRIEF AND HEALING - A PROCESS
This book is a must for school administrators, regular education teachers, special education teachers, parents, college students, psychologists, other mental health workers and anyone who works with students experiencing a minor or major life change. A loss can be as evident as a shooting, a suicide, or a death of a friend. Perhaps the loss is not threatening, but rather an experience that has been harmful. Whenever there is a loss, there is a feeling of pain. It is only natural to grieve a loss, any loss. If psychological services are not available to the student, this can be a very lengthy process. This book will help arm the teacher or parent with some basic tools to guide the student through the six-step process to healing. Without healing, learning cannot take place in school or at home.From the Author:
There has been a marked elevation in the need for crisis intervention, placing an ever increasing demand on psychological servies in public educaiton. The major support in the healing process in now delegated to teacher and parents. This book was not written in an attempt to alter the teacher or the parent role to that of a psychologist. But we hope to help arm the teacher or parent with some basic tools in directing the student toward coping with their sense of loss.
It is important to acknowledge that each of us needs to be empowered with our own time lines to heal. It is only when we recognize the stagnation in grieving a loss tht we must take the initiative to help move one another along to the path of recovery.
