What We Offer
Good Grief fulfills its mission and accomplishes its educational goals by pursuing the environments that have the greatest impact on children and their families who have experienced loss and adversity, including the classroom, home, community, and place of employment. Through training, curriculum, advocacy, and distribution of resources, Good Grief is equipping professionals, parents, employers, clergy, coaches, and caring neighbors to effectively and empathically provide support, preventative care, and collectively build resilience in the face of loss and adversity.
GRIEF IS A RESPONSE TO ALL LOSS, NOT JUST DEATH
Grief is a comprehensive response to loss that impacts the thoughts, emotions, beliefs, and health and wellbeing of children and families.
EARLY CHILDHOOD LOSS HAS LIFELONG EFFECTS
Research shows that supportive, responsive relationships, along with reducing sources of stress, and teaching children core life skills have the greatest impact on a child’s resilience to loss and adversity. Through education, we are transforming environments where grieving children and families work, live, and play in order to increase protective factors and create positive outcomes.
Within a supportive community, every individual has the capacity to rebuild their identities, make meaning, and reinvest in relationships and hopes for the future after loss and adversity. Death, loss, and adversity have the potential to increase risk factors or children and families. Grief helps us to put it back together.
