This intervention helps students reflect, project their internal beliefs and feelings associated with the death of their loved one. This activity can help them to express their deepest feelings and fears about death and gain a sense of acceptance and closure.
This activity includes a fictional character who has lost loved ones. The activity looks at how this fictional character feels about missing them. An example letter from this character to her loved ones as well as a letter from their loved ones to this fictional character is included.
The students are then encouraged to write their own letter (on provided templates) to their loved ones and write a reply letter back. A one page of “sentence starters” is provided to help students should they require some ideas as to what they can write.
