Healing Hearts to Offer Workshop for Spanish Speaking Parents Who Have Lost a Child

Tuesday, April 06, 2010 - Danbury, CT

The entire family is affected when a child dies. Parents are experiencing their own loss, yet they must continue parenting other children who are also grieving. To help support Spanish-speaking parents and caregivers at this difficult time, Healing Hearts will offer a free workshop “Parenting After Loss” to be held on April 29, 2010 from 6:00-7:30 p.m. The workshop will be held in Spanish and will take place at The Healing Hearts Center for Grieving Children & Families at 73 Stadley Rough Road in Danbury, Connecticut. The workshop allows for discussion and education around the grief associated with the difficult loss of a child.

The workshop will be facilitated by Meyer Glaser, PhD, a clinical and school psychologist for Brookfield Public Schools. Dr. Glaser earned a doctorate of clinical psychology from the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology and is a facilitator at The Healing Hearts Center for Grieving Children & Families.

The Healing Hearts Center for Grieving Children & Families, a program of Regional Hospice, offers numerous support groups, workshops and programs to the public free of cost throughout the year.
