Helping Kids & Teens with Grief - Sat, May 6 @ 12:30


Helping Your Kids with Grief & Loss

(A Program for Parents & Care Givers)

Saturday, May 6 @ 12:30

The death of a family member, friend, school mate, or significant person is a lifelong loss for children & teens. It is natural for kids to miss the person who died and to experience confusion and grief. Grief may come and go with different levels of intensity for some time after the death.

It's challenging for parents and caregivers to know what to do, what to say, and how to help children who are hurting. Grief reactions are varied, wide ranging and unique to each person. This program, for adults, will provide useful information on how to help a grieving child or teen; and provide you with understanding and compassion for kids dealing with grief.

Robert Ludwig obtained his graduate degrees from Columbia University. He has worked extensively with children and teens in therapeutic educational programs and bereavement support. He founded and directed The Healing Center, a clinical bereavement counseling program for children and adults. Robert is an adjunct professor at CUNY Brooklyn College. In clinical practice, he specializes in therapeutic interventions for grieving parents and their children due to a sudden death.

 

Write Your Memoir - Sat, May 20 @ 11am

Write your Memoir
Five Minutes at a Time

Sat, May 20 @ 11am

Have you been thinking about writing your own memoir but don’t know how to get started? Or, you feel there’s a gap between what you want to say and the words you put down on paper?

This workshop will help you begin—or expand—your memoir journey. You will learn how to tap into your memory and create and piece together moments of your life literally “five minutes at a time.” From writing prompts that will bring out stories you didn’t even know you carried inside you to lessons in the craft of memoir to suggestions on how to develop and sustain a writing practice, Edvige Giunta’s workshop is packed with useful and inspiring activities that will help the memoirist in you blossom. Edvige Giunta is a Professor of English @ New Jersey City University.

 

This program is funded by the Horizons Speakers Bureau of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
