TIG Manual

The TIG Manual is the foundation of TIG training.  Ever changing, the Manual includes all of the training modules, including PowerPoints and handouts.  Successful completion of TIG training, that takes place over a one year period, ensures that all participants have a common knowledge base and philosophy. 

The Manual includes information from the six modules of the Core Curriculum:

Grief & Loss

Trauma

Suicide Risk & Intervention

Illness & Injury

School Violence

How Children Respond to Death

A child’s developmental level will influence the way he or she understands death and expresses grief. Over the course of childhood, children develop an understanding of the abstract concepts of death and all of the related beliefs.
