Loss-Oriented Support for Students (LOSS): Companioning the Journey from Yesterday's Sorrow to Tomorrow's Hope
Mauk, Gary W.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v84 n3 p104-108 2011
Many students experience a personally significant loss of some nature during the school year. While some losses may appear trivial to adults, other losses are life-changing, such as the death of a loved one, and, compounded by normative developmental changes and transitions, may negatively impact students' emotional well-being, behavior, and academic progress. In this article, the author discusses the issue of loss for children and adolescents and reviews possible approaches educators may use to provide support to loss-affected students.
