LAVA Center events canceled this week

GREENFIELD — Due to staffing shortages, the events planned at The LAVA Center this week have been canceled.

The canceled events include: gallery hours on Thursday evening; a presentation of the newly published book “Fish Discover Water Last: Richard L. Grossman on corporations, democracy and us,” also on Thursday; and the Saturday Holiday Salon.

According to Manager Vanessa Query, The LAVA Center will “reopen next week for a fabulous three-day stretch of art and fun” between Thursday and Saturday.

Support group offered for caregivers

GREENFIELD — The Salasin Project and The RECOVER Project are co-sponsoring a virtual education/support group for caregivers who have domestic violence and/or substance use histories. The group has open enrollment, so there is no deadline by which to sign up.

The Nurturing Program for Families in Substance-Related Treatment and Recovery is a 16-week, evidence-based group designed to offer adult caregivers educational information about human growth and development. This program explores the impact of substance misuse and domestic violence on children and families. The topics from week to week are designed to strengthen participants’ self-esteem and encourage strength-based models for guiding behaviors in children.
