Program Details

This is a program for children 6 – 10 who are dealing with loss and grief.  Grief is always difficult, even more so when you are a child. Sometimes we overlook a child’s grief because they appear to be "moving on" or "doing fine". Because children grieve differently than adults, they’ve been referred to as "silent mourners", as their grief can go undetected. This program explains death to children and provides them with a safe environment to process grief in a non-threatening manner.
