Individual bereavement counseling for children

The loss of a loved one is a severe shock for children and adolescents. In many cases, relatives are paralyzed by their own grief, causing the children to suppress or deny their feelings to keep from being a burden to anyone. Since 2016, the St. John’s bereavement counselors at Lacrima have been helping children find their own individual way to cope with their grief. They grieve together and holistically, using all their senses – by painting, playing, romping about, or screaming.

“Drying Little Tears,” the goal of the Regine Sixt Children’s Aid Foundation, and “Lacrima Bereavement Counseling for Children and Adolescents,” go hand in hand perfectly to help children in need. In 2018, the “MaPaPu” project was established.

MaPaPu – the Mama-Papa-Puppe (mommy-daddy doll) is a very personal memento created by hand from the clothes of the deceased parent or sibling. This doll gives children the possibility to make something that cannot be grasped, and is no longer tangible, a bit more understandable. It gives comfort to children whose souls are unsteady and dries their tears.
