You know the music of John Lennon & Paul McCartney… but did you know they were bereaved youth?

Living with the loss of a loved one brings enormous grief. But with support, we can learn to heal through talking and artistic expression.

“Long Lost John: Drama Therapy” offers these life lessons to grieving families.

COPE is proud to announce this pioneering online therapeutic program based on the story of John and Paul’s early friendship.

“Long Lost John” is a play written by Eddie Zareh, based on the real life experiences of John Lennon and Paul McCartney of Beatles fame.

The Drama Therapy program, conducted by Mary Clohan, uses the story to model healthy solutions for coping with loss. The result is an entertaining and therapeutic online program you can experience from the comfort of home, as an individual, couple or family.

Space is limited to 10 families or individuals who will participate in a series of five unique sessions online – please plan to join all five sessions.

Dates: Tuesdays January 5th, 12th, 19th, 26th and February 2nd

Important note: Please plan to join all five sessions

Time: 6 pm – 7:30 pm Eastern
