Workshop helps children who are grieving the death of a loved one
Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital is offering a hands-on workshop on Sunday, May 15, to help guide children ages 4 to 17 and their parents or guardians through the grief associated with the death of a loved one. The workshop offers children the opportunity to express their feelings and thoughts through creative activities and to meet others who have experienced a similar loss.
While children at the workshop are participating in activities to assist their recovery, parents and guardians will be involved in a grief recovery program geared for adults.
There is no charge for the workshop, which will be held from noon to 2:30 p.m. at Children’s Village, 3801 Kern Road, Yakima. Lunch will be provided. To register, contact Joyce Scott at JoyceScott@yvmh.org or 509-577-5062.
Grief workshops are made possible by community donations to The Memorial Foundation and through Memorial Hospice, the Memorial Small Grant Program, Memorial’s Spiritual Care Program and Children’s Village.
