The Resilient Parenting for Bereaved Families (RPBF) Program is a 10-meeting group program designed to promote resilience of bereaved parents and their children following the death of a parent. The program does this by teaching practical tools for parents in the context of a warm and supportive group environment.
We are psychologists at the REACH Institute at Arizona State University. Following our 25 years of research and over 30 published papers and chapter which demonstrated the extraordinary benefits of the program for bereaved children and their parents, we are now engaged in an exciting collaboration with bereavement agencies and bereaved parents to bring the program to the large number of bereaved families who could benefit from it. Outstanding bereavement service providers across the country helped us shape the program so that it could be practically delivered in community-based agencies. Bereaved parents who participated in the program attested to its benefits and brought numerous ideas about how to make the program better.
