Abstract

The goal of this study and this thesis is to analyze and gain an understanding of how a surveyed group of teachers feel about handling student grief and what experiences they have come across in dealing with students experiencing loss in order to address the importance and necessity of supporting student grief as a teacher. The research questions that helped direct my research toward achieving this goal included: Do teachers feel competent in dealing with student grief? Do teachers feel comfortable approaching the student and pursuing an active role in the student’s grief process? Do teachers feel they have adequate training to handle student grief? Do teachers feel they have access to resources to help them deal with student grief? What can teachers do to help students during their time of grieving?
