Jacksonville, FL (Dec. 21, 2018) – On Saturday, Dec. 8, The Charles M. Neviaser Education Institute of Community Hospice & Palliative Care and The Potter’s House Christian Fellowship presented “Understanding Grief And Supporting Adults and Children Who Are Grieving,” a community seminar designed to help guests identify types and causes of grief.

Held at The Potter’s House Christian Fellowship, the free event focused on helping guests identify the following: 

  • Normal grief reactions in adults and child development
  • Ways to support grieving children before and after a death
  • Interventions for children and their families

“It was an honor to work with the volunteers involved with GriefShare at The Potter’s House and other churches from the community,” said Community Hospice & Palliative Care Vice President of Education and Community Engagement Jim Monahan. “They are dedicated to providing relief and support to those grieving the loss of a family member or friend due to a death. As a co-presenter that day, I can say we taught and we learned. We look forward to working with them again.” 

Since 2002, the Charles M. Neviaser Education Institute of Community Hospice & Palliative Care has been proud to offer grief and loss services for those who have experienced the death of a loved one and who may need support or guidance in dealing with their sorrow. Grief services available include: individual and family counseling (including children and teens), therapeutic grief support groups, services for the newly bereaved, annual candlelight service of remembrance, and a program to cope with grief during the holidays.
