The Video Clips
Each of the following clips focuses on a particular aspect of ‘moving on’ for the parents we talked with. The clips build on the issues that they raise or refer to in the film.
Following each clip there are some questions that you may want to think about by yourself or within a group. A set of possible thoughts and comments - shared with us by parents and others can be found at the end of the questions. You might want to see if your thoughts and responses are similar or maybe you thought of something different, personal to you, that we haven't covered.
If you are running a session using the clips you might wish to use the thoughts and comments provided as a 'back-up' or to further stimulate conversation within the group.
