Footprints Workshops
The Footprints schedule is one hour a day, once a week, for ten (10) weeks and scheduled on an as needed basis. All activities and sessions will be conducted in a group format led by three (3) trained, non-related adult volunteers with 6 or 8 children in each group. All staff volunteers/facilitators are trained in the overall process, in the specifics of the activities, and how to recognize and work with the grieving children.
We put children in peer support groups with other children their age who have gone through similar losses. The activities and games are designed to help children understand their emotions and began to deal with them. All activities and games are group-based emphasizing the theme of "You are not alone."
Getting the parents involved in the healing process is a huge key in the child’s success. While the children’s sessions are being conducted, a session for the parent or guardians with a facilitator trained to answer questions will also be provided on site.
The children's sessions emphasize confidentiality and safety so no one is allowed to go in or out during the sessions. However, during the sessions, additional trainedFootprints Supervisors are on site to brief the adults on exactly what is occurring in each session and what they might expect from their child following the session.
