Abstract

This theoretical-construction research paper explores the literature on parentally bereaved young children aged four to six in order to translate the common experiences of these children into a therapeutic colouring book. The Dual Process Model (Stroebe & Schut, 1999) is also considered as a theoretical frame and links are drawn between it and childhood bereavement. The overlap between these bodies of literature forms the basis from which a framework of themes for the colouring book and applications for use are discussed. The importance of fostering expression and communication in young bereaved children, as found in the literature, as well as the role of art therapy with bereaved children, provides the rationale for this project.
