If you are reading this, it likely means that you, or someone close to you, is suffering from a broken heart. It may have been caused by the death of a family member, friend, or beloved pet. It may have been caused by a divorce, break-up, or an estranged relationship. Or it may have been caused by the loss of a job, a move, or any number of other losses. This sense of loss and the emotional pain you are feeling is the normal and natural reaction to any major change in life!

Helping Children with Loss®

“There isn’t anyone in life who hasn’t experienced some kind of loss. It’s comforting to know that we are not alone in our sadness and that practical, easy-to-read, thoughtful help is available by way of Russell Friedman, John James and Leslie Landon Mathew’s gentle insights on the pages of When Children Grieve. Thank you, Neighbors, for your obvious care.” Fred Rogers

This program is taught in four 2.5 hour long sessions offered once a week. There is reading and assignments in between sessions. HCWL Groups are not drop in style groups. All GRM programs are structured and action oriented. This program is not only designed to help parents, but teachers, school counselors and everyone else who has contact with children. These skills can be of enormous value no matter what loss a child has experienced, including, but not limited to the loss of a parent, grandparent, sibling, a divorce in the family, or even the loss of a pet.
