I see individuals as well as groups and in the past presented workshops to up to 200 at a time.  My book, Mending the Torn Fabric:  For Those Who Grieve and Those Who want to Help Them uses the analogy of a torn fabric as a picture of what grief looks like in order to explore the steps necessary to be able to once more use the material.  I was one of the founders of Healing House, a program for bereaved children and teens.  At this time in my life (85 years) I focus on at-risk, e.g., just out of prison. rehab, mental hospitals, children living in poverty, gay persons whose partner died.
