FALL 2019 GRIEF WORKSHOP DATES AND LOCATION CONFIRMED!!
Our third 2019 WORKSHOP SERIES is for children ages 5 to 9.
It will be held once per week for three weeks at the Bowness Community Association from 630pm to 800pm
on the following dates:
Thursday November 28
Thursday December 5
Thursday December 12
Bernie's Buddies Workshops integrate a peer support environment where youth interact with other youth who've experienced a death loss in their lives. They participate together in a therapy dog visit, yoga exercise movement and mindfulness, and creative grief conversation to help each other find community while navigating emotions after a life-altering loss.
**Please note the loss does not have to be recent.
Participants receive a certificate of completion and a picture of
Brisk, our therapy dog.
Parents and caregivers are encouraged to visit with each other while their children are participating in the workshops.
**OUR WORKSHOPS ARE FREE**
