Gröbenzell - For a year, Malteser volunteers have been accompanying grieving children and young people in the Fürstenfeldbruck district who are directly confronted with losses and fears caused by deaths or serious accidents in the family, among acquaintances and friends or at school and in road traffic.

Five professionally trained grief counselors provide one-to-one support to those affected.

In order to expand the offering and to support even more children and young people in better processing traumatic experiences, the Malteser in the Fürstenfeldbruck district are starting a permanent grief group from March in which affected children and young people can come together in the presence of grief counselors to process their grief together meet loss.

Offer for children and young people

“Children and young people who have experienced similar things interact differently in a group.

They exchange ideas with their peers in their own way and can then experience self-efficacy again,” says Alexandra Obertreis, who, together with Thomas Braun, leads the Malteser children’s bereavement support service.

The offer is aimed at children and young people in the Fürstenfeldbruck district aged around ten to 15 who have experienced loss due to the death of a mother or father or a sibling.

First meeting in March

The first meeting to get to know each other and exchange general information will take place in mid-March.

Participants come to this appointment together with their parents.

After that, meetings (without parents) take place every three to four weeks.

The place and time of the regular meetings have not yet been determined, as the Maltesers want to take into account the place of residence of the children and young people after registrations have been received in order to find a meeting place that is as good as possible for everyone.

Patron: Katrin Staffler

The project is under the patronage of Bundestag member Katrin Staffler and is unique among the Maltese in the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising.

The project is voluntary and free of charge for those affected.

If you would like to register for the grief group or find out about grief support services, volunteer or donate, please contact Alexandra Obertreis and Thomas Braun, Malteser Hilfeservice, grief support for children and young people, at Wildmoosstrasse 30 in 82194 Gröbenzell, telephone: 08142 5968-46 or write an email to: kindertrauer-ffb@malteser.org.
