Supporting bereaved people with additional needs

Wednesday 19 July 2017, 2pm – 3.30pm GMT, online

It is essential that traumatically bereaved people with additional needs are fully and correctly supported through their grief, and this crucial webinar will cover best practice guidance and guidelines in providing effective support. Signposting to a variety of global organisations who are able to offer support will be provided, as will advice on support methods that can be particularly helpful.

Topics covered will include:

  • An overview of challenges people who have been suddenly bereaved and have special educational needs may face
  • Discussion of the ways in which people with special educational needs experience and process bereavement
  • Signposting to a variety of organisations who are able to provide guidance to those supporting people with special educational needs

Confirmed speakers for this event include:

  • Professor Sue Read, Professor of Learning Disability Nursing, University of Keele
  • A Brake volunteer, discussing their personal experience of providing support

Who should attend:

We would encourage all support professionals who are responsible for supporting bereaved people to attend this essential, free of charge webinar. This event is particularly helpful for practitioners, support workers and counsellors who may be supporting bereaved people whose family members have special educational needs, or who do not have a speciality in supporting those with additional needs. This event offers an excellent professional development opportunity to all support workers, therapists and bereavement counsellors.
