Balloons – bereavement and loss looking onwards
There are many resources available in the arena of death, dying and serious illness. This website list has been devised to provide assistance when trying to find a book specific to a particular role, age group or type of illness. We have collated much of the information from our own library and have also added some information from the Winston’s Wish website.
About Balloons – bereavement and loss looking onwards
We have found that in working creatively with young people, communication and understanding can be enhanced through the use of storytelling, creative activity and metaphor. It can act as a bridge by providing the means and safety from being one step removed and can also be a comforter and reaffirming source, when young people realize that they are not the only person to experience what they are going through and that many of their responses emotionally and behaviorally are completely natural. The way we have categorized this information on our website is for general guidance only. There will, of course, be exceptions to the rule regarding developmental and chronological age differences
