Rainbows and Prism are offered in the Fall semester only
The Rainbows program helps children (Grades K-6) to heal a loss by encouraging participants to share their feelings with caring facilitators and other children who have suffered similar grief. Through fun activities, games and discussions, Rainbows helps children understand and accept the changes in their lives and learn communication, problem-solving and positive coping strategies to get what they need from life. We also help parents give emotional support to their children through the Prism class (held at the same time as the Rainbows classes) and highly recommend a parent or parents participate in this program.
Some topics discussed are:
One of a Kind
Who Can I Trust?
Making the Pieces Fit
Facing Fears and Worries
Blow Ups and Let Downs
Where Do I Fit In?
Weathering The Storms
