This chapter provides school-based practitioners with practical evidence-based guidelines for developing culturally relevant responses to support bereaved students of diverse cultures. The chapter highlights culturally competent approaches, explores key cultural considerations for assessing the significance of culture in the student’s life, helps school-based practitioners identify unique and important cultural values, beliefs, and practices, encourages cultural conversations, and facilitates healthy grieving through cultural understanding and appreciation. Culture is often a major determinant in how one perceives and navigates the world in circumstances of grief and loss. Therefore, it is of paramount importance for school-based practitioners to know how best to support culturally diverse bereaved students. The importance of the practitioner’s developing his or her own cultural awareness and cultural humility is emphasized.
