“There is no grief like the grief that does not speak”—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
For all of us, talking about loss is hard. But children might have an especially difficult time talking. They don’t want to burden anyone; they are afraid of how others might react to what they say; they are worried they might have had something to do with the loss.
Being in group meetings makes all of these obstacles to talking a little more manageable. Here children and adults are with peers whose similar loss makes them much easier confidants. Group becomes a safe place to let your grief “speak”.
