I am extremely proud and delighted to welcome Jillian Lucht as my Associate Coordinator of the Good Grief Workshop for Children and Teens. I worked with Jillian for many years at the MUHC, and always found her to be a passionate and consummate professional while ever maintaining compassion, empathy, and generosity. There is no one else with whom I would entrust the future of the Good Grief Workshop for Children and Teens.
Jillian Lucht holds a Master's degree in Social Work from McGill University and is a member of the Order Of Quebec Social Workers and of the Canadian Association of Psychosocial Oncology. Jillian has worked at the MUHC for the last five years as a clinical Social Worker in the Oncology Day Centre and the Inpatient Oncology/Hematology unit. For the last three years, Jillian has also volunteered with Mount Royal Commemorative Services as a facilitator in the Good Grief Workshop for Children and Teens, and has now become the Associate Coordinator with Natalie Segall. Jillian's past experience also includes internships in family therapy at the Jewish General Hospital's Child Psychiatry Program. Jillian's current work focuses on facing loss on various levels, and helping individuals and families cope with loss, illness and death.
