ROMS PARENT REVIEW:
Good Grief – Supporting adults who are supporting youth in grief
When loss and change hit home, it can be an overwhelming time for the whole family. People grieve differently, and, for youth especially, grieving is a unique experience different from children or adults. This 1.5 hour workshop is for parents, grandparents, neighbours, friends and others who would like to learn more about how to support youth through grief.
Friends of Living and Learning Through Loss will offer an educational space to review conceptual and practical tools to facilitate healthy conversations and strategies for healing with youth at no cost to attendees.
Topics will include: grief and mourning in youth, various types of loss (tangible, intangible), life areas impacted by grief, coping strategies and support tools, and an overview of the programs and resources that Friends of Living and Learning Through Loss offers.
This special 90 minute workshop will be held on Wednesday, June 5th from 7:00pm - 8:30pm in the Learning Commons at Royal Oak Middle School. Please register at:
We look forward to seeing you!
