2012 National Seminar - Monument
For Adults

Join us as we bring together survivors and leading professionals in the grief and trauma field, to share a weekend of understanding, hope, courage, and love.

Since 1995, TAPS has welcomed all who are grieving the loss of a loved one who died while serving, providing a full weekend of events for adults and children alike. In Washington, DC, we are surrounded by the monuments of our nation that honor the service and sacrifice of our loved ones and remind everyone that “Freedom is Not Free.”

For Children
TAPS Good Grief Camp for children and teens provides a safe and supportive atmosphere to conduct activities and opportunities to learn coping skills, establish and identify support systems and create awareness that they are not alone in the grief of their loved one.   Children and teens meet others of their own age group to share and learn, together.
2012 National Peer Mentors
Become a Peer Mentor
TAPS will also be conducting a day of Peer Mentor Training for those who are at least 18 months beyond their own loss and are ready to be there for others and offer support. We have a day of training on Thursday prior to the Seminar. You will learn more about grief and trauma, gain basic helping skills and become part of our TAPS Peer Mentor Team! All those attending the training must take an online training course prior to attending classroom training. You can register for the Peer Mentor training as part of the general registration. For more information concerning Peer Mentor training, contact kellie@taps.org.

It is easy to think we are alone in this journey… but at the TAPS National Military Survivor Seminar and Good Grief Camp for Young Survivors, we are not alone. There is always someone to lend an empathetic ear, a supportive shoulder, and the precious gift of time to be there for you; whether to talk or to just sit quietly.

In dealing with struggles of the heart and soul, we seek people and places that can provide solace from the grief that surrounds us. The time we spend with each other and the memories we take home are invaluable to us as we face each new day and take each new step in this most unexpected life.

Come and share our weekend. Whether it is your first visit or you are returning for our annual family reunion, a warm smile, an understanding heart, and open arms await you. Join us as we “Remember the Love, Celebrate the Life, and Share the Journey” …together!
