Kidzcope provides peer-based grief support for children (ages 3 to 18) and their caregivers at no cost to the family. Drawing on the experience and empathy of fellow mourners fosters a quality of understanding that has a significant impact on the capacity for healing. Reflective listening, discussion-based activities, and expressive arts help each individual give outward expression to their grief. The nine-week program provides a safe environment and supportive network, allowing each family member to build connections with peers, learn life-long coping skills, alleviate feelings of isolation, and gain tools for reconnection and communication within the family.
