10 Conexión del Corazon Un programa de apoyo para niños y familias que han perdido un ser querido Little Company of Mary Hospital y Centro de Salud 2800 W. 95th Street Evergreen Park, Illinois Conexión del Corazon es un programa de apoyo para niños (de la edad 5 hasta 17 años) y sus familiares que están en luto por la muerte de un ser querido. Los grupos de apoyo estan dirigidos por voluntarios profesionales con educación en dolor. Los voluntarios guían los niños en actividades creativas para ayudarles expresar su dolor y darles la oportunidad de hablar acerca de su ser querido. Los grupos de niños normalmente se dividen por edad y tratamos de tener no más que niños por cada grupo con tres voluntarios calificados. En los grupos los niños hablan de sus sentimientos y recuerdos de su ser querido y aprenden a tener la suficiente fuerza para aguantar los cambios en su vida. Mientras los niños están en sus grupos los padres/guardianes estan en sus propios grupos de apoyo que son ofrecidos por una consejera que se especializan en dolor. Ellos aprenden como cuidar sus niños y como cuidarse ellos mismos mientras también están en dolor. Normalmente, es por el mejor interés del niño de que el niño puede entrar al programa de apoyo hasta tres meses después de la muerte de un ser querido. Si usted quiere que su niño empieza antes de los tres meses, tenemos siempre consideración especial para todos los tipos de circunstancias. El programa se reuné los Lunes por la tarde, de 6:00pm a 7:30pm por ocho semanas consecutivas. El programa/los grupos son gratis.
