Talk.Listen.Care (TLC)

Since 1997, through our TLC program for children, hundreds of grieving children have learned valuable coping skills and positives ways of expressing their feelings in a productive and effective manner. Our TLC program is for children aged 5-13 years. Children who have experienced the death of a sibling, parent, grandparent or someone the child was close to who died. TLC is a 9 weeks closed group, once the group has begun no more participants can join the group. TLC is facilitated by trained facilitators in the Hamilton, Burlington, Niagara and Brant County locations.

Please note that all our closed groups require an intake, which can take up to 1/2 hours. If you have any additional questions about our groups or pre-register. Please contact us at (905) 318-0070.

Missing Pieces Workshop for Teens

Missing Pieces Workshop for teens provides a safe, non judgemental opportunity for youth to share their experiences, feelings and thoughts about the loved one who has died with other youths in a professionally supported environment. Youth are at an age where they may already be dealing with the changes in their transition from childhood to adulthood. When the death of a loved one occurs, it is common for these struggles to be magnified, leading to anger confusion, deep grief, despair, hatred and sadness.

Please note that all our closed groups require an intake, which can take up to 1/2 hours. If you have any additional questions about our groups or pre-register. Please contact us at (905) 318-0070.
