From “A Message from the Author”:
“This book follows the group structure that is currently in place at The WARM Place. The children are grouped with other children who have experienced a similar death loss. There are parent loss, sibling loss and grandparent loss groups. The children are also grouped based on their age. The Children’s groups are for 5 to 8-year-olds, Preteen groups are for 9 to 12-year-olds, and Teen groups are for 13 to 18-year-olds. The Children, Preteen and Teen groups are open-ended, with the participants staying in the program for as long as they choose to stay. A parent or guardian also attends a group support session while their child/children are in their group(s).
The activities in this book can be used in a multitude of group settings. They can be used in a grief agency, in a school or in a church group for kids in grief.”
