TRU Youth and Family Grief Support
A child old enough to love is old enough to grieve. – Dr. Alan Wolfelt
TRU Community Care offers grief support to children and teens through Healing Circles. We provide grief education, consultation, and peer support throughout the year as well as individual short-term counseling for children and teens who have lost a loved one through a TRU Community Care program. Grief is unique and may vary in duration. Kids have different needs from adults and process loss through play, activity, and sometimes acting out. They might get a tummy ache or a headache rather than express their grief. Sometimes they might grieve in short bursts or regress a little in behaviors. Teens may appear to be fine and yet need extra support as they are creating their identities without turning to negative coping strategies while grieving. We empower and encourage kids in a safe and nurturing environment.
All of our services and programs are open to the community and require pre-registration. Our therapeutic playroom, highly trained volunteers, and close collaborations with community allow us to provide services for all different ages and grief styles.
