Building Resilience in Children Affected by HIV/AIDS
This handbook is aimed at helping parents, caregivers and teachers to understand children who are nursing a diseased parent or who have lost a parent. It provides practical advice for teachers and caregivers on how to support children who have experienced loss and death in order to help them cope. In addition, it offers ideas for discussions that can be held on a one-to-one basis in the child’s home or with a group of children in the classroom. It is neither a recipe for success nor a book of rules. Instead, this handbook consists of a collection of ideas, theories, tasks and exercises that should help us to understand the behaviour and feelings of children affected by HIV/AIDS.
