Parenting After Loss Support Group
Hospice of Santa Barbara
Hospice of Santa Barbara is offering a support group, in both English and Spanish languages, offering free help for families who have lost a parent or guardian. Eligible participants include the surviving parent/guardian and children. Each evening will start with a family style dinner, and then participants will break out into separate groups: one for parents and guardians in both English and Spanish and up to three children’s groups by age (3-17 years).
Educational topics include: grief and grieving, how children grieve, importance of family time, difficult feelings, challenges with children, saying good-bye and moving forward. The support group provides an opportunity for participants to connect with others who are facing, or have faced, similar situations. Co-facilitators, licensed professional counselors and peer counselors, strive to make each group a safe, supportive and healing place.
Dates: Every Wednesday, September 28th through November 16th (eight weeks)
Time: 5:30 –7 p.m.
Location: Hospice of Santa Barbara, 2050 Alameda Padre Serra, Suite 100, Santa Barbara 93103
