Children’s Good Grief Club
Good Grief Day is a free/no cost event for children ages
7 – 15 who are grieving due to death, incarceration, deployment of a loved one, or maybe their parents have divorced, or they have moved from familiar surrounds and are looking for ways to accept painful feelings while gaining a new sense of normal. During the free grief day camp, bereavement counseling professionals will utilize art, music, play, and grief curriculum to assist children in identifying their unspoken feelings and process their grief. “Our goal with these age-appropriate activities is to provide a safe and creative outlet for the grieving children to express their painful feelings. We strive for Good Grief Day to encourage a sense of empowerment and resilience as grieving children navigate through their loss,” said Amy McAnally, LCSW, Director of Psychosocial Services at Hospice of Texarkana.
