dc.description.abstract Grief and loss has an impact on students in schools. This project combines qualitative and quantitative research into an action research case study. A small high school in northern British Columbia is the location of the project. Areas ofliterature research include: models of grief and loss, models of grief and loss specifically for adolescents and children, grief and loss (death) education, support groups, helping relationships, grief and loss teams, community building in schools, and the sharing of craft knowledge. Data collection techniques include: interviews with students and teachers following interview blueprints, two focussed discussions with different classes, and exit slips. Data analysis uses a three-phased coding process. Three main themes from data collection are: grief and loss, support systems and relationships, and future directions and personal/professional growth. Some of the findings show: a difference in the ways that teenage boys and girls deal with grief and loss, ideas for implementation of grief and loss education for students and teachers, student concerns about support groups, and validation that community building in schools is essential. Grief and loss lives in schools, it is time that all schools do something to acknowledge the needs of grieving youth, and communicate with youth to find out the students individual needs while grieving. en
