Pediatrics – Good Grief Program



Our mission is to provide families with bereavement support in a safe place where they may find individual expression for their loss and develop competence in managing their grief in ways that promote resiliency and self-esteem. The CIRCLE provides direct bereavement support for children and parents or guardians. The program encourages remembering and sharing through creative outlets such as writing, playing, singing and creating art. The CIRCLE is offered two Monday evenings a month throughout the school year, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. The program includes children ages 5 to 13, with an accompanying adult in each family group. The curriculum follows the four stages of mourning as developed by Dr. Sandra Fox, founder of the Good Grief Program. A free pizza dinner is served.
