Hospice of Spokane is beginning a new session of “Connections,” a support group for families with children who have experienced the loss of a loved one.
This series begins Wednesday, 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., and continues through the fall.
The series is free and open to children in grades one through 12.
Children, who are divided into age-appropriate groups, meet with experienced Hospice of Spokane bereavement counselors.
A support group for adults – the participants’ parents or adult guardians – will be offered at the same time.
Child care will be provided by arrangement for younger kids.
Connections is designed to help children and adults:
• Find a safe environment for the expression of feelings
• Recognize that they are not alone in their grief
• Understand that grief is a normal expression of loss
• Learn about parenting a grieving child
