Life After Loss
Thanks to generous donors, all participants will be provided full scholarships to attend.
The Online Workshop
Applications Due: August 26, 2020
The 2020 Life After Loss workshops will be held online as a four-day therapeutic program, designed to help individuals who have experienced the inexpressible grief following the death of a child. A key component of healing takes place in community; therefore, participants will move through their own unique process while being supported by the small group and larger community who are bonded by the same life experience.
Participants will learn the Grief Model of trauma recovery, how grief and loss impact the brain, and tools and resources to assist in understanding sadness, mourning, anger and acceptance. The program will help participants:
Identify where one is in the grief process
Move forward without moving on
Acknowledge and honor one’s loss
Find empathy and compassion for yourself and others
Life After Loss was inspired and funded in part by the Huie Family after the loss of their son Ryan. The Peacock Invitational Golf Tournament honors the life of Ryan and ensures this program is available via full scholarship to parents who qualify.
The program will accommodate bereaved parents who are selected based on admissions criteria. The program is available to all who qualify regardless of race, religion, gender identity, or sexual orientation.
Therapists from our partners at Onsite have over 100 years of cumulative experience working with individuals and groups experiencing Trauma, Depression, Anxiety, and Grief. These therapists were hand-selected for the work with a variety of modalities effective in treating PTSD and trauma-related disorders.
The application window for Life After Loss is open until August 26, 2020. Please submit online through the above form and someone from The Onsite Foundation will be in touch.
