Resources for school, college and university staff
For staff, we offer training on emotional resilience, grief and bereavement and a discussion session on Life’s Questions. It is hoped these sessions can help create confidence to support teams, self and students and be able to signpost where needed.
Life’s Questions offers the opportunity to encourage students to talk about those difficult or challenging topics. Equally, it is important staff have the ability to have these conversations too. The session offers an opportunity to open up and have a conversation about life’s challenges such as death, loss, funerals and grief. It can be facilitated as an assembly or in small groups and is seen as a proactive approach to empower teenagers and young people to discuss in a non-judgemental space. The session involves discussion and listening to others’ experiences and thoughts and developing a deeper understanding of life’s experiences which will encourage emotional resilience and the ability to support others now and in the future.
This session aims to provide a tool for teams to support each other following adverse, difficult or challenging situations. The team will work through a debriefing model to recognise their strengths, protective factors, vulnerabilities and adversities to overcome those challenging situations using a reflective model. This strategy will aim to empower the team to off-load emotions, feelings and move forward with positivity.
Grief and Bereavement
This session aims to explore social beliefs on various types of loss and the impact on individuals. It looks at different grief models, exploring different reactions to grief, and what is helpful and what is not.
