What is Social Emotional Learning (SEL)?

Lory's Place Peer Support Groups
Lory's Place offers regularly scheduled sessions at Coloma Elementary and Coloma Intermediate. Each session brings children together who are grieving after the death of a family member or friend. These sessions are open not only to children who attend sessions at Lory's Place, but also to children who cannot come to Lory's Place because of transportation problems, work or schedule conflicts. School group sessions are facilitated by professional bereavement staff members and trained volunteers, along with our school social workers. These peer group sessions are a safe, comfortable place for your child to share feelings, do grief-healing activities and receive the empathy, advice and hope needed for the grief journey.
