  • "The Grief Groups program provides us with training and tools for school social workers and clinical staff. The training has equipped us with practical tools to run grief groups during school hours. It has also provided our team with the resources to be able to effectively lead grief groups in a virtual setting. This has been incredibly helpful given all of the loss and grief our students continue to experience."

  • "Thank you so much for this wonderful training! Discussing death and dying with children is not always the most comfortable conversation. The information you shared helped me feel a lot more comfortable with the idea of facilitating a group in the near future!"
