Bereavement & Critical Incident

The Educational Psychology Service has a specialist team called "The Bereavement and Critical Incident Response Team"

Sheri Wright

Guidance on what helps and how children normally react to the death of someone close or to a very frightening event, can be found in the attached documents:
