Summary

This guidebook has been created to be used alongside the storybook, The Girl Who Lost the Light in Her Eyes. Using a relational approach, it explores the themes of the story and offers guidance to the adult as they use expressive arts to give the child or young person a creative outlet for their emotions. The gentle guidance offered makes this an ideal tool for non-specialists working with children experiencing loss or bereavement. It guides the adult to respond appropriately and sensitively to the grief of the child, whilst helping them journey through the grieving process.

This book must be used alongside the illustrated storybook, The Girl Who Lost the Light in Her Eyes. Both books are available to purchase as a set, Supporting Children and Young People who Experience Loss. The full set includes:

  • The Girl Who Lost the Light in Her Eyes, a colourfully illustrated and sensitively written storybook, designed to encourage conversation and support emotional literacy
  • Using the Expressive Arts with Children and Young People who Experience Loss, a supporting guidebook that explores a relational approach and promotes creative expression as a way through loss or bereavement

Perfectly crafted to spark communication around a difficult topic, this is an invaluable tool for practitioners, educators, parents, and anybody else looking to support a child or young person through bereavement.
