Bernie’s Buddies Workshops integrate a peer support environment where kids interact with other kids who’ve experienced a death loss in their lives. They participate together in a therapy dog visit, yoga exercise movement and mindfulness, and creative grief conversations to help each other find community while navigating emotions after a life-altering loss. **This loss does not have to be recent and there is no cost to participate.
Participants receive a certificate of completion and picture of Brisk, our therapy dog.
Parents and caregivers are encouraged to visit with each other while their children are participating in the workshops.
