In Kids Konnected support groups, youths meet face-to-face under the guidance of a professional therapist to discuss how a parent’s cancer is impacting their lives. In the first 30 minutes, families are invited to eat pizza, hear about upcoming events and get to know their fellow participants better. Following dinner, youths divide into two age groups for 60 minutes of group therapy. In the kid group (5-12 years old), participants engage in games, art therapy projects and discussions that address common issues children face when their parent is diagnosed with cancer. The teen group (13-17 years old) has a more traditional structure, with participants bringing in their own struggles and triumphs and sharing it with the group for advice and guidance. Therapists for the teen groups guide the conversation and share resources that support discussion topics. Both groups are educated on cancer treatment and coping skills. Please RSVP if you plan to attend by noon the day of the meeting by calling 949-582-5443 or para español 213-344-3799 Ext.1109.
