This card pack is designed for facilitators to use with teens when discussing the grieving process. The 81 cards correspond to activities in the book GriefWork for Teens - Healing From Loss. Kick-start a session with questions on the cards or use them as an activity during a session.
The topics include:
• Getting in Touch
• Telling Your Story
• A New Normal
More cards are supplied than needed for a typical session. Cards can be chosen on a particular subject or pages from GriefWork for Teens (page numbers are included on each card), or those most appropriate to your group.
Participants are usually seated in a circle. Recommended group size is 4-14 folks. After explaining the purpose of exercise, participants are asked to pick a card. If they are comfortable answering it they can do so. Otherwise, they can pick another card or pass the one they chose to the person on their right. Allow time for discussion and feedback.
It is helpful if the leader participates, emphasizing that everyone has loss and grief issues.
