6-Week Program for Children Ages 4-12
Fall 2021 dates: Wednesday September 29 – Wednesday November 3
Healing Little Hearts focuses on helping children understand and cope with feelings of loss when they have experienced the death of someone in their life. The group offers a safe and supportive environment in which grieving children can share their experiences of death and grief with their peers, developing their capacities to care for themselves and one another.
- Learn to recognize and name a wide range of feelings and practice healthy ways of expressing a range of emotions
- Gain comfort sharing memories about the person who died
- Develop a sense of community among understanding, grieving peers
Children participate in one of two streams and are grouped age appropriately. The children’s programs are facilitated by professional therapists and complemented by 1-2 volunteers who provide support.
A concurrent group is run along side the children’s group for parents and caregivers to help them understand how children mourn and how to assist children in expressing their feelings of loss. This group is facilitated by peer facilitators.
This group is generously supported by:
The Brenda & Dave Walden Family Foundation
