Abstract

‘Crocus' is a group based in Inverness, but working throughout Highland Region, which seeks to offer support to bereaved children. This article offers a look at the work of the Crocus Group and its challenges and achievements. Working with children of school age, and using a variety of activities, the Crocus Group's ‘Days To Remember' help these children to articulate their losses through play. This article is based on a paper originally submitted to the SJHC 10th Anniversary Conference in Crieff in March of 2007.
