2.  HCMN'ers Favorite Tools

Alison Sparks writes:

I work with bereaved children.  I like to use the continuing bonds model by Klauss Silverman and Nickman. Often we will do artwork around what characterstics have been passed on by their parent who has died.  It may be a portrait or an abstract collection of things.  Often very powerful and connecting.
