COPING KIDS & TEENS
"I feel better knowing that there are other kids who feel the same way I do." ~ Everett, age 16
How children feel inside is very different from how they appear "on the outside." The Pathways Center's Coping Kids & Teens Program provides consultations, assessments, groups and individual sessions for children and teens. Bereavement counselors provide a variety of services to families impacted by illness and death. Information, support, grief groups, written materials and individualized training on children and grief issues are also available.
If you would like to explore the individual needs of your child, teen or family impacted by serious illness or death, our bereavement counselors are available to meet with you. Should professional assistance beyond the scope of services we offer be needed, our staff can recommend additional support through local resources.
Children, teens and adults grieving a significant loss each meet separately on Coping Kids & Teens support group evenings. While the children and teens participate in an activity, adults are encouraged to stay and talk with other adults and counselors about the challenges of parenting grieving teens and children. The Pathways Center offers this program throughout the school year. Click here for more information about Family Support.
