Fostering Resilience in Children Coping with Loss is for anyone who wants to learn how to support a grieving child or youth.  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. 

This program will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m, on Thursday, April 19 at Imagine’s location: 244 Sheffield Street in Mountainside. There is parking behind the building at the end of the driveway. A $20 donation is appreciated. Pizza dinner will be provided at 6:15 and the program will begin at 6:30. 

Sadly, children and youth experience loss:  divorce, moving, friendship, sports injuries as well as illness or death of a parent or sibling.  Despite these losses, children can learn to become more resilient and adapt to change if given the right support. How can we best support them in their homes, communities and schools?  Allowing them to share their feelings with trusted adults and peers encourages them to explore coping in healthy ways.  Those who attend this training will learn:  definitions of loss grief and mourning, how children and adults grieve differently, how grief affects behavior and ways to support grieving children and youth.

Imagine’s Executive Director and Founder, Mary Robinson says,Research shows that the most important factor in supporting a grieving child is the active presence of at least one caring, healthy, functional adult in their life who knows how to listen and be there for the child.”  This program will teach you how to be that presence in the life of a grieving child or youth. 

Please RSVP by Tuesday, April 17thTo RSVP or for further information contact Connie Palmer at connie@imaginenj.org or call 908-264-3100.  Imagine is a free grief support center located in Mountainside and serving all of Union County and beyond.  Visit our website at www.imaginenj.org.
