NEW Grief Support Workshops for Children and Teens
July 12, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm PDT
An event every week that begins at 3:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until August 2, 2022
Free Summer Series from The Elizabeth Hospice
Children have an especially difficult time processing the death of a family member, friend or another significant person in their life. While we cannot protect children from the pain they are experiencing, we can help them feel supported and teach them healthy coping skills.
The Elizabeth Hospice is offering a FREE six-week series of workshops for children and teens. The program is open to all community members, ages 7 to 17. Sessions will be held on Tuesdays, June 28 through August 2, from 3:00 to 4:30 pm, via Zoom. Space is limited and attendees are required to register by June 22 at James.McLaughlin@ehospice.org or by calling 833-349-2054.
“Children and teens will participate in art, music and other age-appropriate grief-related activities that will help them gain a better understanding of their own grief and loss,” said Kathlyne Barnum, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Clinical Counseling Program Supervisor with The Elizabeth Hospice. “Over the six sessions, the themes of anger, unfairness, growth and compassion will be explored. These workshops are designed to help kids reduce their feelings of isolation by connecting with others who are experiencing a similar loss.”
The Elizabeth Hospice’s grief support services are available to everyone in San Diego County and Southwest Riverside County, including families who do not have a patient affiliation with the organization. Counseling services are available for individuals, couples, families and children. For more information about grief counseling and support groups, visit www.elizabethhospice.org or call 833-349-2054.
