Talking about death

Podcast transcript
Death podcast (PDF 147kb)

Psychologist Warren Cann talks with 3RRR radio host Jacinta Parsons about helping your child deal with death and dying.

Warren offers tips for responding to your child's questions about death. He suggests being clear and open about the ‘what’ and ‘why’ of dying. Preparing your child for a visit to the hospital, or to a funeral can be very helpful. Keeping to your usual routines provides a consistency that can be comforting to your child.

Callers share their stories and experiences of death, and how they have helped their children understand the process.
