ABOUT THE CENTER…
Formerly a Center that provided counseling services, bereavement group
facilitation, in-service seminars and personal grief counseling,
Rising Sun Center continues to see and ship its grief materials,
including books, games, and music for retail sale.
These grief materials were created for caring adults and
professionals to use with children and teens.
They have been ordered and used widely by counselors, play
therapists, hospices, schools, hospitals, children’s grief centers,
mental health centers and families suffering loss all over the U.S.
and in other countries as well.
LOSS AND RENEWAL…
Loss is a natural part of life, and as much as we would like to shield
children from the pain and heartbreak of loss, we can’t.
Pets die. Parents
Cancer takes the life of a grandparent.
A sibling is killed.
Grief is our natural response to loss of any kind.
Rather than trying to shield children from the pain and turmoil
which loss sometimes brings, we need to help them express their grief
and learn from the experiences they encounter when a loss occurs in
their lives. Supportive
grieving is a journey to healing that leads to renewal.
ABOUT OUR GRIEF MATERIALS…
Our grief materials have been carefully designed and created for
children and teens who may be grieving many different kinds of losses
such as death (including murder and suicide), divorce, pet loss,
relocation, terminal illness, incarceration of parents, physical
impairment, foster care and adoption, and different kinds of trauma
such as domestic violence and sexual abuse.
They include engaging games, workbooks, puppet plays, resource
material, and music for children and teens, as well as the adults who
care for them. Several
national book distributors include our materials in their catalogs.
