CCPA to hold grief management seminars| March 3, 2014
The first seminar, titled “Understanding and Supporting Grieving Children,” held from 9 a.m.-noon and tailored for practitioners, will explore the fundamental principle of supporting children ages 5-12 who are grieving the death of a significant person. The presentation will include discussion about developmental stages, how feelings are expressed in normal and complicated grief, and steps to follow as practitioners to best facilitate integration and build emotional skills. Lallas will offer a framework by which to approach this process and suggestions for language to use, and will coach caregivers with fun and creative activities.
The second seminar, “Understanding and Supporting Grieving Teens,“ held from 1-4 p.m., will address the challenges and opportunities specific to teens ages 13-17 who are grieving the death of a significant person. While a teenager's understanding of death is developmentally closer to that of an adult, they are managing other natural stages of emotional and social growth that can make these years a difficult time to process death. Lallas will offer a framework by which to approach supporting grieving teens, as well as provide nformation about developmental stages and structuring support groups for teens. Case examples will also be provided.
The cost to attend either seminar is $65 per person or $90 to attend both sessions. Light refreshments will be provided. Lunch is on your own. To register, go online. For questions, contact Joann Lindstrom at 777-9178.

Multicultural Resource Center changes reporting structure| February 28, 2014
Hampton and Sirju-Johnson have been working together for the past couple of months, Hampton said. “We’ve been collaborating on different things as a normal course, but now we’re actually working much closer together and making sure we begin to weave the ideas around diversity and inclusion through the fabric of the University.”
For the time being, both offices will remain in place, but there are plans to consolidate the physical space of both offices into a more user-friendly space where students have a place to meet, work together and collaborate, Hampton said.
