Schools & Workplaces

The loss of a student, teacher or other member of a school community can be especially difficult for children and faculty. The Grief in Schools Program offers a comprehensive program providing a customized set of learning opportunities, support for educators, professional workshops, crisis intervention, de-briefing, and consultation based on the school community’s needs and circumstances.

Administrators or educators in need of grief support through the Grief in Schools Program can contact Vicki Scalzitti at 847-653-3123.

A death in the workplace can uncover just how important and personal work relationships are. The Rainbow Hospice and Palliative Care’s Grief in the Workplace Program provides support to colleagues through group and individual interventions, customized to fit the unique situation. A team of grief specialists offer opportunities for coworkers to express and address their feelings and concerns, while providing helpful information on trauma, stress management, self-care and how to support a grieving colleague.
