Thank You 2016 International Summer Institute Attendees!
The Dougy Center’s 2016 International Summer Institute brought together 25 people from around the country for a week long training filled with skill building, inspiration, and new friendships. Participants arrived eager to learn not only from The Dougy Center’s staff, but also from one another about how to best provide peer support groups to grieving children, teens, and their family members.
