Good Grief offers peer support groups designed to encourage supportive connection for children and youth who are living with grief due to a family death, divorce, separation or other painful transition.
Goals for participants
• Encounter a supportive community where thoughts, questions and feelings about their loss can be safely explored
• Realize they are not alone; that others have experiences and feelings similar to their own
• Identify feelings and recognize how they come and go with time
• Learn helpful coping strategies and how to express feelings in healthy ways
• Move toward acceptance as inner strength and resilience are uncovered
