Judi’s House on National Stage for Childhood Grief

In June, Judi’s House/JAG Institute was well represented at the 19th Annual National Alliance for Grieving Children (NAGC) Symposium in Portland, Oregon. Our Executive Director, Dr. Brook Griese, was an invited panelist for a plenary on research that was attended by over 450 participants from around the country. She was also invited to co-lead a workshop on understanding and applying research, and provided interviews for national media efforts focused on raising awareness about childhood bereavement. Dr. Micki Burns, our Director of Programs, led a forum on school based grief services at the symposium, and both psychologists gave a well attended presentation on Judi’s House evaluation findings with Dr. Samantha Farro, Director of Evaluation and Research, co-authored by Dr. Louise Silvern, Principal Investigator at CU Boulder, and Dr. Ayelet Talmi, Director of Institute Development.
