Deriving from the authors experience of working with bereaved children after the Hillsborough disaster, the book advocates a model of practice which is based on their findings: the primacy of listening to children, and listening uncritically- the importance of peer-group and family support- and the value of paying attention to childrens needs, not those of adults.

It promotes the idea of healthy coping, and explores ways in which children and their families can be enabled to do this. Children explain what helped me, and recommendations for practice guidelines are supplemented by extensive lists of resources and support networks. The model can be applied to children who have experienced varying degrees of trauma: bereavement, bullying or terminal illness, for example. It also includes material which will be useful to those working with traumatised children with learning disabilities. Reflecting the views of children in conjunction with the professional expertise of the authors, this book will enable carers to reassess existing methods and forms a major contribution to the literature.
