Children experience death very differently from adults in terms of their understanding, control, and the level and type of information they require. Bereaved children therefore need different kinds of help from bereaved adults. Understanding Children's Experiences of Parental Bereavement is based on the author's work in the area of child bereavement, loss and schools over a ten-year period. This included notably a doctoral project carried out at the University of York entitled Project Iceberg, involving adults who had been through the experience of a parent dying while they were of school age. The findings of this project form the basis of the book's exploration into the way children are affected at the time of, and potentially for many years after, the death of a parent. A revised childhood model of loss is suggested to help to explain the experiences of children after the death of a parent. John Holland also examines funerals and the significance of rituals, as well as the importance of a careful transition back to school and of effective communication. Age and gender differences in children's grieving are also considered.
