Christine Fawer Caputo is a Doctor in Sciences of Education and Associate Professor at the Haute École Pédagogique in Lausanne, Switzerland, which trains professionals of education. In her work, she is mainly interested in the place of death and mourning in schools. In the first place, she advocates the introduction of an “education for loss” in the school world, because death – but also the multiple bereavements that pupils may experience – often raises many questions of a philosophical and existential nature. A pedagogy of loss, based on interdisciplinary activities and varied materials adapted to the age of children and adolescents, would make it possible to answer these questions but also to prepare young people for an inescapable reality common to all living beings. However, she is also interested in the roles that teaching professionals (administrators, teachers, other educational actors) take on during crisis management – such as the death of a pupil or a colleague – or when accompanying a mourning pupil who has lost a parent or sibling, by observing the practices adopted, the partnerships put in place to resolve situations, the difficulties encountered, the needs identified and the resources available.
