Dover-Foxcroft, Maine --- Six people have completed the second 28-hour training offered by Evergreen, The Pine Tree Hospice Center for Grieving Children and Their Families. New volunteer facilitators include Scott and Terri Warren of Dexter, and Sandy Engstrom, Martha Flewelling and Clare Thomas of Dover-Foxcroft. Deb Drew, LCPC, of Sebec will serve as a Clinical Consultant for the Evergreen program, providing support to the Volunteer Facilitators every other week. Trainers for this class were Terry Bourassa of Glenburn, Erin Callaway of Dover-Foxcroft and Linda Kelly from the Center for Grieving Children in Portland.
Training is being offered again this fall for those interested in supporting grieving children, teens, young adults and families. Trainees must attend all six sessions being held at Mayo Regional Hospital over four evenings (10/28, 10/30, 11/04, 11/06) and two Saturdays (11/01 and 11/08) and are asked to make a one-year commitment to Evergreen. There is no charge to attend the training.
A 10-minute video is available to anyone who would like to take a closer look at the program. If you would like more information about becoming a weekly Volunteer Facilitator, Substitute Volunteer Facilitator, or serving as a Clinical Consultant, please contact PTH. To ensure enough time to complete pre-training interviews, all applications for the fall training must be received by PTH on or before October 17th.
