About this class
No one likes talking about death, especially to children. However, as it is often said: The only thing sure in life is death. Therefore, it is important to be prepared to tackle this conversation with our children when it arises. In this masterclass, Dr Paula Corcoran explains with a great deal of love and compassion, how children understand the concept of death as they grow, how to deal with a child who has a terminally ill family member or who experiences a sudden death in the family, and how to deal with strong emotions during the grieving process. This masterclass is of interest to all parents.
