Hospice Services of Lake County is offering a series of free workshops for individuals who interact with children and teens as they navigate grief associated with loss and the death of loved ones. The workshop content and format will benefit professionals, front-line workers, volunteers, advocates, counselors, and people in other similar roles.
This workshop series will take place on four Saturdays, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., beginning Nov. 6. Each workshop session builds on the next. Participants are encouraged but not required to attend all four sessions.
Sessions will be conducted virtually and in person. In-person space is limited to accommodate appropriate social distancing. Workshops will be at the Hospice Services Lake County Bereavement Center,1862 Parallel Drive. The virtual option for the workshop will be offered through the Zoom platform.
These interactive workshops present participants with information and tools that can be effective in a variety of settings. “Gaining an understanding of grief and its stages combined with additional knowledge of effective responses will potentially empower youth throughout their lives, recognizing that experiences of loss continue throughout life,” says Bereavement Services Manager Kathleen Bradley. Bradley adds that “building on the set of interventions in our toolbox to support children through grief boosts resilience in our community.”
