Good Grief for Kids & Teens

Children experience grief reactions even before they have words to describe their feelings.  It is known that children who are supported in their grief learn valuable skills that can sustain them as they grow and develop.

Good Grief for Kids & Teens is an age-based psycho-education program designed to let kids know they are not alone, to give their grief a voice through play, art and storytelling and to support the adults who care for them.  Each session is professionally led by therapists with expertise and experience in childhood grief.

Attendance to all sessions is strongly encouraged.

Topics for discussion may include:

  • defining grief
  • types of loss
  • feelings, emotions, memories
  • how to identify a support system

There is no fee to attend. Registration is required.

First time attendees may download a registration form here and call 831-320-1188 to register.
