Children, teens and adults will experience different losses in life: divorce, moving, friendships ending, sports injuries or the death of a friend or family member. People of all ages can learn how to cope with loss if given the right support and education.
On November 14th from 6:30 – 8:00 PM at its center in Mountainside, Imagine will offer a workshop on Supporting Children, Teens and Adults Coping with Loss for anyone who wants to learn how to support someone who is grieving. While loss due to death will be the primary focus of this seminar, the concepts that will be presented are applicable to all types of loss. It is especially important for parents and grandparents, teachers, members of community organizations, coaches, therapists, counselors and social workers to attend this program.
Those who attend will learn: definitions of loss grief and mourning, how children and adults grieve differently, how grief affects behavior, and ways to support grieving children, teens and adults. A $20 donation is appreciated but not required. Pizza dinner will be provided at 6:15 and the program will begin at 6:30.
Please RSVP by Tuesday, November 12th. To RSVP or for further information contact Connie Palmer at 908-264-3100 x102.
