Description of Business or Organization

Storybooks For Healing is a group bereavement program which assists individuals in making meaning of their grief and loss using a guided writing program and then publishing a tribute to share and remember.

How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life?

No doubt -- writing, the seminar experience and  being turned "on" to lifelong learning still hovers in my professional life!  At the core experience of the Storybooks for Healing is small group work for insight development, sharing and learning/growing together. This is parallel to the TESC seminar experience when hard work is rewarded with collective understanding and knowledge while one still embraces the individual journey.
