On Wednesday, June 24th New Hope hosted its very first two-hour Parent Workshop: How to Support Your Grieving Child After the Death of a Loved One. Under the leadership of New Hope’s Clinical Director, Jerry Wilson, the workshop was led by Jen Leong, M.A., CT. a grief specialist and educator with over a decade of experience. The workshop was designed to give parents a road map to enable them to provide support to their grieving child or teen. Parents learned healthy ways that children grieve, how to support your grieving child at home and at school, and how to know when extra outside help is needed and where to find it.
One mom, Fiona, who lost her husband in April 2014, had this to say about the Workshop:
We are very excited for this new Workshop and look forward to offering it three times a year. If you or a loved one is interested in attending future workshops, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
