Dr. Ken Druck offers four vibrant programs designed to provide support and begin the healing process for those who are supporting a grieving family member, friend, colleague, neighbor or community member. Each program is custom-tailored to the specific needs and kind of loss that has been suffered by your family, school, place of work, organization, and/or community.
The Compassionate Workplace
This hybrid program provides support and education to co-workers/colleagues/management in the aftermath of a life loss or living loss. Leaders and their employees learn best practices for providing emotional and operational support to fellow-employees, helping the bereaved ease their way back to work and building a culture of compassion and resilience. Diverse organizations such as Scripps Hospital, Qualcomm, Costco, SDG & E, the YMCA, Geiko Insurance and The San Diego Chargers and their HR Departments have benefited from the Compassionate Workplace Program over the past 17 years. The program includes Dr. Druck’s books and grief literacy handouts and can be given as part of a work lunch or series of 1 hr. optional staff meetings.
The Compassionate Classroom
This program, developed by Dr. Ken Druck in 1998 for school communities in response to the death of a student, teacher and/or parent provides grief support and education. Dr. Druck has led custom-designed school assembly’s, teachers trainings, informal student gatherings, PTA and parent meetings in the aftermath of tragic losses, including Columbine, Santana and Sandy Hook after the school shootings.
School Administrators, Boards, teachers and parent groups learn best practices for providing emotional and operational support to traumatized students, parents and teachers, helping them ease their way back to school and building a school culture of non-violence, kindness, compassion and resilience. Dr. Druck has worked with the full-range of public and private schools from elementary to universities. The Compassionate Classroom program includes Dr. Druck’s books and handouts.
The Compassionate Community
This program is designed for communities that have suffered a loss. Like all of Dr. Druck’s programs, it is designed to fit the needs and situations of that particular community. Dr. Druck begins by interviewing community leaders and those who are at the “epicenter” of these losses. Together they design a programs or series of programs, from small group meetings to large town hall meetings, as he did in NY after 9-11 and Newtown, Connecticut after Sandy Hook.
Special Compassion Support Programs
Dr. Druck has designed and given special programs for those working in high-stress, critical incident and bereavement programs, including the military, domestic violence, police and firefighters.
