“I thought I could describe a state; make a map of sorrow. Sorrow, however, turns out to be not a state but a process.” —C. S. Lewis
This panel discussion on death and loss will address supporting school communities from the inside—teachers, staff, and students—and the outside—parents, community members, and friends of the school. Topics will include self-care, professional preparation, pastoral community care, student support resources, timelines of support, communication tools, and special considerations.
