8 September & 14 September, 2022
Session One: What Is Grief?
8 September 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM
This session will take an in depth look at the definition of grief.
We will explore the different reasons for grief, so as to gain clarity on the fact that grief is the result of more than just death.
We will also explore the different kinds of grief, because most times people are grieving more than what we think and they know.
Session Two: The Journey
September 14 10:30 AM – 2:30 PM
IN PERSON at MCCOY
This session will focus on the ways that we grieve, both obvious and unobvious.
We will discuss ways to help youth navigate their grief and how to maintain connection with them as they grieve.
This session will also consist of role play scenarios for the sake of practical learning and implementation.
