Hospice offering kids series on loss of loved one

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

For more information and to register: (509) 456-0438.
