After a Suicide: A Workbook for Grieving Kids.
Lindholm, Amy Barrett; Schuurman, Donna L.; Hoff, Joan Schweizer
This workbook provides activities and ideas for children who are suffering the loss of a family member or friend through suicide. Each section contains activities to help them understand and cope with the loss. Displayed throughout are the words, drawings, and suggestions of children who have also suffered through this tragedy. Some of the activities include working through the myriad emotions they might experience, then finding these words in a puzzle; drawing pictures of masks showing their emotions; and writing out a list of all their unanswered questions. The workbook provides support for children as they go through their journey of healing. (ADT)
