About

Full Circle was established in 2008 as a comprehensive grief resource center for children, adults, and their families to find a variety of creative ways to express their grief, such as art, writing, play, crafting, photography, and music.

Often, children do not have the language or communication skills to explain how they are feeling when experiencing grief. Creative arts help children convey their feelings of loss and explore their thoughts and beliefs. Also, because violent or traumatic experiences regularly get recorded in the mind as images or pictures, art can help children recount details of a traumatic loss more effectively than just talking.

Full Circle hosts family groups as well as groups specifically geared towards those effected by lossed from suicide and perinatal loss. Each group includes a family activity as well as age-specific small group work. In each children's small group, we require a volunteer to assist with our professional counselors. This is great experience for those considering a career in counseling and/or social work. It's also very rewarding for those who enjoy working with children. We are looking for additional volunteers to help with our groups, which run two hours per week for eight weeks.
