🔊 Listen to Raising Teens: Grief

Hear Lola’s extended interview with a teen experiencing grief

How do young people deal with the loss of a friend or family member? How can parents, who may be grieving themselves, help their teens to cope? How does grieving affect the wider family and how do you cope with special occasions like birthdays and Christmas? Does it affect teens differently? Where can parents and teens get practical help and support?

Our guests were Ross Cormack from Winston’s Wish, a charity giving help to grieving children, authors Mark Lemon and Martin Spinelli, and parent Helen.
