Memorial offers children’s bereavement workshop

Do you know a child who is grieving the death of a parent or other close loved one?

Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital is offering a hands-on workshop for children ages 4 to 17 to help guide children through the death of a loved one. This workshop will provide an opportunity for children to express their feelings and thoughts through creative activities and meet others who have experienced a similar loss. Parents and guardians also will participate in their own grief recovery program geared for adults.

The workshop will be from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 8, at Children’s Village in Yakima.

Lunch will be provided for every family, and parents are encouraged to enjoy lunch with the children before the activities begin. This workshop is provided at no charge to participants.
