The Forgotten Mourners Summary

The Forgotten Mourners: Guidelines for Working with Bereaved Children by Margaret Pennells

Children have long been the "forgotten mourners". This new and revised edition expands on the original book by Sister Margaret Pennells and Susan Smith. It raises awareness of the sensitive issues involved for bereaved children, highlighting their needs and their emotional and behavioural responses when a bereavement occurs. The book includes two new chapters, on traumatic bereavement and secondary losses in bereavement, and it provides more information on each topic. Children's reactions to bereavement and their behaviours are described in more detail, and the consequences of failing to acknowledge children's grief and ways to tackle the subject of death are outlined.

The Forgotten Mourners: Second Edition maintains the simple, accessible approach of the original book and will be of use to teachers, social workers and all those working in the field of child bereavement, particularly when faced with difficult situations.
