In this concise book, Australian parenting author, educator and resilience specialist Maggie Dent writes about how grief and loss (such as a relationship or friendship ending, moving towns, or parents’ divorce) can affect adolescents.
She suggests practical ways in which teens can be supported to cope during this difficult time by each other and by their parents, teachers and others who live or work with them.
Over 40 years, Maggie has worked as a teacher, family and youth counsellor, in suicide prevention, palliative care and the funeral industry, and now as an author and educator. As an authorised celebrant, she has conducted more than 200 funerals. She draws on her wisdom from these experiences – and from being the mother of four and a ‘lighthouse’ to many – to produce this practical, common-sense, compassionate guide to support those going through one of the toughest challenges life can bring.
