Adolescence is a time of tumultuous changes, but no change is more overwhelming than suddenly facing the realities of death. Dealing with the death of a family member, friend or school acquaintance can be devastating for young people. Many young people will resist the concept that grief is a normal or necessary emotion. This video arms teen viewers with information that will teach them that death and bereavement are natural and inevitable parts of life. Many of the myths around mourning are explored. Teens will understand that the process of mourning is unique for all people, and should never be ignored or trivialized. The video provides helpful information on the emotional states that often follow a personal loss. Leading adolescent psychologists discuss the stages of healthy grieving and healing, and provide details on how to cope with a painful loss. When Someone Dies offers students a sense of confidence that they can indeed go forward after suffering a personal loss. Activities in the Teacher's Resource Book allow students to further explore this universal topic.
