Rainbows Support Group

  • When a change takes place in the family, whether it is death, divorce, or other painful transition, it has a profound effect on all members in a family. Children need sufficient time and guidance to support them through these profound changes. Even those who seem to have adjusted well from an event that happened many years ago, are often struggling inside with the churning, conflicting emotions of grief. The children need someone they can talk to and trust; someone who will listen to their story while guiding them through the grief process.

    Our Rainbows groups will consist of a small group of children. These groups will meet for six consecutive weeks, take a short break, then meet for a final six weeks. At the end of the session there will be a “Celebrate Me” day.

    If your child has suffered a loss and would like to participate, please contact Leslie Kollasch, school counselor, by note, phone call at 770-460-3565, or e-mail at kollasch.leslie@mail.fcboe.org.
