Pediatrics – Good Grief Program


For more than 20 years, the Good Grief Program has offered clinical, training and consultative services to families, educators and health providers and communities to help adults help children facing life’s speed bumps.

For tips on talking with children about the Connecticut Elementary School shootings, please download (PDF):  Words, Strategies and 'Why' to Talk to Children, by Maria Trozzi, M.Ed, Director of the Good Grief Program.

When children and families face any of life’s stressors, they can feel overwhelmed, whether it’s acute or on-going, due to illness, a disruption in the family, a death or a divorce, a difficult diagnosis or any of life’s speed bumps.

Based on the premise that with crisis comes an opportunity to develop, strengthen and master coping skills, our mission is to train adult professionals, support families and scaffold children so that they may become resilient in the face of loss. We can help in a number of ways.

BMC’s Maria Trozzi’s book, Talking with Children about Loss is available to order on amazon.com. Learn more about he book here
