peers who have suffered similar loss and to express their fears, anger, guilt, and sad-
ness in a secure and empowering environment. Utilization of music, art, story telling, 
writing, and play promotes the healing process. Clinicians and trained volunteers, 
supervised by professional clinical staff, facilitate age-appropriate groups for pre- school/kindergarten, early elementary, upper elementary, middle school, high school, 
and young adults (at some locations.) These age divisions ensure that peer groups 
are run in an age- and developmentally-appropriate manner and that children are en-
gaged by and with others of a similar level of understanding of death and the 
serious topics death generates.
