The Role of Memorials in Helping Children Heal

pp. 0

Abstract: From a historical viewpoint, this article reviews how memorials facilitate grief. In particular, memorials have the potential to assist children in integrating the past with the present, building hope for the future. Sensitive to key aspects of children’s grief, suggestions are made to assist school personnel in not only structuring immediate activities, but in planning long-term memorials that promote healing and move students beyond the initial disaster.
