Kids Do Grieve Workshop 3 May 2012

Kids Do Grieve

Lorna Wood, a child and adolescent psychotherapist, will be presenting this workshop for The Grief Centre.  Lorna will present a clinical case study which will give participants the opportunity to explore the concepts required for children to gain an understanding about death and dying.  The different developmental needs specific to the age of a child who may be grieving will also be discussed.  This workshop will be particularly suitable for those whose work brings them in touch with children experiencing grief and loss, and/or their parents and carers.

Thursday 3 May, 2012 from 2-4pm at Taitamariki Guide Hall, 8 Auburn St, Takapuna (note change of venue).

Cost:  $20.  Registration is essential. Please phone 09 4181457, or email office@griefcentre.org.nz with your contact details.  Click here for more information.
