The Irish Childhood Bereavement Network (ICBN) are hosting National Bereaved Children’s Week 14th – 18th November 2016.
There are a number of events happening nationwide but the highlight is their Conference on Friday 18th November 2016.
This year’s conference is entitled ‘Quality Support: The Way Forward Standards | Care | Research’ and aims to look deeper into what quality childhood bereavement support involves for practitioners.
The conference is an ideal opportunity for social workers, nurses, therapists and other professionals working with bereaved children to learn new skills, from recent evidence based research, that they can use in their own work to improve outcomes for bereaved children.
It will also act as a useful overview for those who occasionally encounter bereaved children and would like to learn how to support them such as teachers, youth workers, public health nurses etc.
