Hospice Foundation of America Presents Webinar on 'Bereavement Camps for Kids: Benefits and Challenges'
Date:12/7/2009

WASHINGTON, Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Nationally-known expert Kenneth Doka, Senior Bereavement Consultant to Hospice Foundation of America (HFA), will host a discussion of the need for, and role of, bereavement camps as an intervention for children, adolescents, and their families during Hospice Foundation of America's (HFA's) live online webinar on Monday, February 1, from 1pm -- 2:30pm ET. Dr. Doka will be joined by Sherry Schachter, Director of Camp Courageous in New York; Angela Hamblen, Director of Camp Good Grief in Tennessee; and Bonnie Carroll, Executive Director of TAPS, which offers support to those suffering the loss of a military loved one.

"Almost 875,000 children and adolescents have experienced the death of a parent," states Dr. Doka. "Camps can be an innovative and successful milieu for supporting bereaved young people." The speakers will examine underlying theoretical models of bereavement camps; identify some considerations in developing a camp program, including setting the target population, securing funding, and training staff and volunteers; discuss compliance issues; and explore some special issues that may arise. Schachter, Hamblen, and Carroll will each discuss their specific experiences in running a bereavement camp, focusing on camp structure, which children may benefit most from the program, and successful activities. The webinar and supporting materials will offer a toolbox of practical information such as intake forms, publicity materials, and hands-on suggestions.

"If you already run a camp, this webinar will reaffirm and review the most current information and best practices," notes Amy S. Tucci, CEO/President of HFA. "If your organization is considering starting a camp, this webinar will be a great place to explore this new and viable approach to serving the bereaved youth of your community."
