Rainbows is a proven program of weekly grief and loss support groups for children, adolescents, and teens. The program is designed to help these children deal with their feelings of grief and anger then constructively begin a new life. This program is not a counseling or therapy session. It is strictly a peer support group with caring, trained adults to guide.
The format of this program consists of twelve sessions divided into six-week sessions. Each session is built upon the previous one, so we encourage the child to attend each week.
Once a week for approximately 45 minutes, the children come together in small groups to discuss various topics in relation to their situation: Self, Trust, Anger, and Family. The children also will share in an activity and discussion that will focus on one of these topics. There is also the opportunity to learn and ask questions about God's love and healing grace.
