Pediatrics – Good Grief Program


General Training Programs – Workshop VI

Good Grief! A Comprehensive Family Support Program 

Like Workshop V, this workshop gives you all the skills needed to begin your own family support program replicating the CIRCLE. The CIRCLE supports children in developmentally appropriate age groups, ages 5-8, 9-13 and a group for the adult family member who accompanies them. The training includes a curriculum for a 16-session program that encompasses the school year.

The CIRCLE is based on the four psychological tasks of mourning as developed by the late Dr. Sandra Fox. You will learn how to recruit and fully train facilitators, how to organize each session, how to incorporate children's self-expression such as writing, playing, singing and art into your sessions and how to determine appropriate themes for the adult groups.
