Adult Support Groups
Our Family Program Supports Adults with Children
Helping parents/guadians understand and support their grieving children is an essential component of our family programs. The parents/guardians of the children work in groups sharing experiences and supporting each other through facilitated conversations. These conversations address the same themes that are being worked on with the children groups so that families return home and continue to reinforce what has been learned each week in their grief work. The parents or guardians are given information to help the children with their grief and answer their questions. Grieving adults need support and encouragement while maintaining multiple roles at home and at work even as they move toward their own restoration. Roberta's House provides a space for acceptance, caring and support where families can begin to rebuild their forever changed lives together.
