Acknowledging thoughts and feelings relating to content

The EN Toolkit explores the experiences of people with life-limiting conditions and personal responses to death and dying. These issues can be very personal. They may trigger emotions.

These emotions are natural and students should be advised to talk to teachers, family or friends if needed. Students may also consider accessing counselling services if required. Teaching staff should identify local services or those provided by the education facility.

When working on activities in a group, it is important to remember the following points:

  • privacy and confidentiality are essential
  • an individual's feelings and thoughts must be respected
  • an individual's right not to disclose feelings and thoughts must be respected.
