Newsflash! Children’s Grief Connection is Making Headlines
The Association for Death Educators and Counselors, (ADEC) certifies thanatologists and conducts grief research. Their fall quarterly, ADEC Forum, was dedicated to grief camps and reached over 1,800 thanatology professionals, including funeral directors, around the globe. The article titled “The Jones Family Goes to Camp” was chosen for the front page. On acceptance to the publication editor Tashel Bordere commented, “This is cutting edge; we don’t see many family grief camps developmentally designed for every family member and we don’t see any programs run by funeral directors, our people need to know what you’re doing!”
The other ‘people’ that learned a bit more about Hearts of Hope Family Grief Camp this last month were the subscribers to American Funeral Director magazine. An article on Children’s Grief Connection made the front cover of the magazine. With a reach of over 30,000 funeral and cemetery professionals making the cover of the magazine will spread the news nationally. Relaying the origin (at MFDA) and the history of funeral director partnership, the article highlights the work we do together. Please take the time to read these articles, they’ll make you feel good, smile and be prouder of our partnership.
