Healing Hearts, Session 1
Healing Hearts at Hamilton's, is a grief program especially for children first through sixth grade, held periodically throughout the year. Healing Hearts is designed to help children begin to recognize and understand the many feelings associated with the death of someone loved. With adult support, children can continue to discover and develop lifelong skills for coping with loss as a part of life.
At Healing Hearts, children have the opportunity to interact with others their own age that have experienced the death of someone very dear to them. Through activities, stories, games, songs, talking about feelings, art and conversations with a bunny puppet named "Hamilton," they find a comfortable place to express their thoughts and feelings. This program is available to all children in our community at no charge.
