Coping With Separation and Loss
Stefanie Powers, Editor   July 2007
Item No.: 385-OLB

Separation and loss is a part of every human life, ranging from mild and transient changes to life-altering events. Sometimes very young children suffer separations and losses that threaten to overwhelm their coping abilities. The articles in this issue explore a range of experiences that call upon young children to cope with separation and loss: deployment of military parents during wartime; divorced parents; emotionally unavailable parents; and the death of a sibling during pregnancy or early infancy. Although the circumstances of separation and loss examined in these articles vary widely, the authors reveal common strategies for helping children be resilient: predictable, consistent routines; sensitive and honest communication; opportunities to express feelings; and rituals or activities that help children feel connected to the one they are missing.
