Adult Grief Group- 9 week closed group for adults ages 18+ages. The group goes through each step of grief along with a focus on specific struggles such as holidays, change of roles after death of l loved one and spiritual reflection. The groups are set up for 8 clients per clinician all groups(if more than one) for 20 min Psycho education then splints into the groups to provide time for each client to share and seek peer support. This is an extensive program designed to guide a individual through grief work to a place of hope beyond grief. I usually dedicate one week to a project that includes art Therapy for adults. Journal topic is given as homework. Draw, think, write etc. (active 15 mins of grief work) outside of group.
Children Grief Group- The children 's grief group is a coinciding curriculum with the adult program with the home of touching a whole family who is grieving.

I start out with a 15- 20 gross motor exercise followed by a snack and beverage 10-20 mins(protein/crabs like cheese sticks and grapes) to keep the children 's energy up and interest.

If there are large gaps in age groups children will be separated to appropriate group ages.
