?Written from the authors' personal experience, this enlightening handbook outlines the ways in which schools can help their pupils come to terms with the death of a parent. ?A child loses a parent every 22 minutes in the UK. Childhood bereavement brings with it a whole series of challenges for the children involved - challenges they will deal with all their lives. The research shows teachers want to help, but don't know what to do. ?This book is a start. ?Written by bestselling author Ian Gilbert together with his three children, Independent Thinking on Loss is a personal account of the way educational institutions tried and succeeded, tried and failed and sometimes didn't try at all to help William, Olivia and Phoebe come to terms with the death of their mother. ?Several months after their mother's death, BBC's Newsround aired a brave and still controversial programme in which four children talked about their losses. This prompted Ian and his children to sit down and think about their own experiences and draw up a 15-strong list of dos and don'ts that could help steer schools towards a better understanding of what is needed from them at such a difficult time. ?This handout received such a warm reception that the family decided to expand their advice and suggestions into what has now become Independent Thinking on Loss, the proceeds of which will go to Winston's Wish, one of the UK's leading children's bereavement charities. ?Independent Thinking on Loss is an updated edition of The Little Book of Bereavement for Schools (ISBN 9781845904647) and is one of a number of books in the Independent Thinking On series from the award-winning Independent Thinking Press.

This is how you should lead a school. This is how you should manage a class. This is how children should learn. This is what you should do to make children behave. These messages are given as if there is only one way to achieve these things - their way. However, with decades of experience working in all types of school around the globe, the many Associates of Independent Thinking know there is always another way. This book is for educators everywhere who are hearing these loud voices yet who know there must be another way. Full of examples to prove this is the case and inspirations to try new things, There is Another Way is a call to action to swim against the tide and reclaim the heart of education.

Regardless of the specialism or background you are from, there is something for everyone in this diverse and insightful anthology.
