Good Grief! A Kids' Support Group When Bad Things Happen

Everything you need to know to facilitate a school-based support group (for school counselors, upon request). In order for children to thrive academically, they need to feel supported as they face stressful life events such as family members' illnesses, death and divorce. A school-based support group is a wonderful way of acknowledging loss, mitigating the isolation that children experience and providing a rich opportunity for expressing difficult feelings and offering peer support. This training can be tailored to your counseling staff's needs. The training includes a developmentally appropriate curriculum with activities.
