Program sponsored by Healing Hearts of Waukesha County and Oconomowoc Parents Education Network Grief in children can occur as a result of trauma associated with death, divorce, incarceration, immigration, military deployment, abandonment and separation. Grief is a natural and normal response to any of these traumatic events. To help parents of children help their children who are experiencing grief, Healing Hearts of Waukesha County, in conjunction with the Oconomowoc Parents Education Network (OPEN) is sponsoring a free workshop on Tuesday, Jan. 27, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., in the Little Theater at Oconomowoc High School. Healing Hearts of Waukesha County is committed to supporting children and families experiencing grief. Executive Director Chris Beck will help parents understand how they can best support children experiencing any of these difficult situations. After thirty-nine years of teaching Speech, English and Television Production in the Waukesha High Schools, Beck volunteered as a facilitator with Healing Hearts where she witnessed the power of the program to assuage children’s grief. This is her fourth year as a facilitator and her third year as executive director. Please attend to learn more about a powerful topic that touches all of our lives.
