This is the question addressed by the UK Childhood Bereavement Networks one day seminar ‘Cultures of grief: bereavement in young people’s worlds’ which takes place on Thursday May 2nd at the TUC congress Centre, London.
The conference will examine the ways in which culture impacts on children’s grief and assess the implications of culture for professionals and volunteers supporting bereaved children and young people taking a wide ranging view examining how grief is represented in music, books, films and social media.
