To all our loyal participants and volunteers Natalie and I have decided to cancel this year's Good Grief Workshop for Children and Teens. We learned from last year that this event does not translate well over Zoom. Rather than offering a mediocre event we would rather focus our efforts on offering a service that works. We are also working on a big in person return next year.
We are looking to host a support group to offer to those who would have been in the teen group. We feel this age range can definitely benefit from the support and are able to function well over Zoom. If anyone knows of any teens( younger or older teens) who might be interested please let us know!.
Over the last 10 months, as part of Good Grief Central we have been offering general grief support groups every 6 weeks. This has been extremely successful and we continue to have ongoing demand. We are also offering a music therapy group with a music therapy student. Once again, should you come across anyone who might benefit from these groups, please refer them to our website, facebook page, instagram or just simply to either Natalie or myself.
Natalie Segall and Jillian Lucht are honoured to coordinate theGood Grief Workshop for Children and Teens. This biannual, free workshop is for children and adolescents 5 – 19 years old who have experienced the death of someone close to them.
Age-specific groups led by a team of trained volunteers will provide a group format to help children understand and express their grief. The workshop will involve structured activities that are designed to give children the opportunity to share their feelings with other grieving children, learn from each other, and honour the memory of the person who died. On the same day, we also offer a concurrent Parent Discussion Group to give parents/guardians the opportunity to discuss the topic of children’s grief.
