Presentation Description 

Grief education for children and adults in the community as well as professional trainings serve to increase outreach and advocacy for bereavement organizations. Community education reaches potential volunteers and donors, but most importantly supports a broader vision of “a world in which it is okay to grieve.” Grief is a normal reaction to loss, but many times our culture is not knowledgeable or accepting of the grief process. An easy interactive activity for children teaches about grief and support while trainings for adults can be offered in a variety of settings and to a wide range of people. 

About the Presenters:

Lane is the Program Director of Kate’s Club in Atlanta, Georgia. As program director, she oversees the quality of all programs offered to Kate’s Club members and their families. She ensures the programs are consistent with best practices in the field of childhood bereavement. She also leads KC Connects, the outreach program of Kate’s Club. Through her personal experience with grief as well as her education, Lane is passionate about helping children and adults through their grief journey. Before Kate’s Club, Lane worked as a counselor in hospice and as a volunteer facilitator at Camp Stars. Prior to becoming a counselor, Lane taught English-to-Speakers-of-Other-Languages to both children and adults in the Atlanta area. She brings keen cultural awareness to her work. Lane holds a BA in Philosophy from Georgia State University and a MS in Clinical Mental Health counseling from Mercer University and is a Nationally Certified Counselor. She is an Atlanta native and lives with her two teenage daughters in Alpharetta, Georgia.


Liz is the Program and Outreach Coordinator at Kate’s Club. She works closely with the Program Director on KC Connects, the outreach program of Kate’s Club. As Program and Outreach Coordinator, Liz works to increase awareness of Kate’s Club within the broader Atlanta community, so that Kate’s Club can meet the needs of more grieving children in the Atlanta area. She also works to develop new partnerships with schools and community organizations, as well as to further engage existing Kate’s Club partnerships. Originally from Columbus, Georgia, Liz graduated from Emory University in May 2014 with a B.S. in Anthropology and Human Biology. While enrolled at Emory, Liz was student director of the Emory chapter of Camp Kesem, a national organization that provides free camps for children coping with a parent’s cancer. She is also a graduate of Emory’s Community Building and Social Change Fellowship Program, where she worked within Atlanta communities on projects pertaining to asset-based community development. These experiences have made Liz a strong believer in the importance of peer support and community engagement.
