6-Week When Children Grieve Peer Support Group | October 23, 2018 | 6pm

This peer support group is primarily for parents and other guardians of grieving children who have been affected by a significant loss, like the death of a parent, grandparent, sibling, or someone else important to them, the divorce of the child’s parents or grandparents, or pet death.

This program is also valuable for counsellors, therapists, teachers, and anyone else who interacts with children on a regular basis.

This program will teach you how to guide your children in completing their relationship to the pain, isolation, and loneliness caused by a significant loss of any kind.

The text that is used to guide you to recovery is When Children Grieve: For Adults to Help Children Deal with Death, Divorce, Pet Loss, Moving, and Other Losses by John W. James and Russell Friedman.

The text and other program material will be provided to you upon commitment to the program.

We welcome you to join Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®, Gina Baretta, in participating in this transformative 6-week program that begins October 23, 2018 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at our office. Your investment for participating is $295 ($25/hour).

For registration and payment, please call (780) 288 – 8011. Full refunds are available up until 7 days prior to the commencement of the group.
