The Invisible String Children’s Grief Workshop

July 8, 2018 Event flyer

Thanks to a grant from Partnership for Better Health in Carlisle, PA, we are excited to offer our next child/family workshop at the DMTF Center for Grieving Families, 7 S. Earl St., Shippensburg, PA. The Invisible String Grief Workshop will take place on Sunday, July 8 from 2-4 p.m.  We will read the book, “The Invisible String” by Patrice Karst and offer numerous activities to help children process their grief related to the death of a loved one. The activities are designed for children in the 4-12 age range. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Space at this workshop is limited. Please contact the DMTF at 717-532-8922 (leave a detailed message if we’re not there) or drewmichaeltaylor@pa.net to reserve your spot.
