How long before we can start attending a group?

We aim for you and your family to get started as quickly as possible. If there is a waitlist for your group, we do our best to accommodate families’ needs as much as possible. The more flexible your schedule, the quicker we can get you started.

Do we have to wait long before we can attend a Pathways group?

The Pathways Coordinator will discuss the group with you and send forms to complete prior to attending the group. Once the forms are received by the coordinator, your family can participate in the next Pathways group that meets.

Where do I find resources and information?

Search for free information, books, tips, and activities we created for grieving pre-school and school-aged children and teens and for supporters of grievers.


How will we know when we’re done with the group?

If you need help deciding if your family is ready to close from your group, our Group Coordinators are happy to provide some guidance to assist with that decision.

Similar to how we recommend that adults and children/teens discuss whether they want to start a group at Dougy Center, we also suggest adults and children/teens make a shared decision about when they are ready to end your time at Dougy Center.
