Companions on a Journey
Companions on a Journey Grief Group
Creekside is pleased to offer support to our students who have experienced the death of a loved one or friend. Companions on a Journey Grief Support, Inc. will be coming to Creekside beginning in September to provide students with the opportunity to discuss their experience(s) with peers who have had similar experiences. Students will meet in a confidential group setting to participate in various activities and discussions chosen to enhance their knowledge of the grief process and to encourage healthy grieving.
I will be facilitating the group along with a bereavement specialist from Companions on a Journey Grief Support, Inc. COJ is a social service organization that provides bereavement support and educational services for children, teens, and adults.
If your student is interested in attending the Bereavement Group, please email me at the address below. I will then send you a consent form to complete and have your child return it to me as soon as possible.
COJ will be at Creekside on the first Tuesday of each month starting on September 5. Our group time will be 9:45-10:25. We will have sessions once a month until the end of the year.
Please contact me if you have any questions or would like additional information. We look forward to working with your student and supporting them on their journey.
