Abstract (Summary)

Grief can be defined as all of the thoughts and feelings that people have when someone they love dies. In order to cope with grief in a healing manner, the grieving person must have support and education. This study explored children's level of grief, in particular, youth of ethnic minorities who live in low-income neighborhoods before and after they attended a grief support group. With a young population at a heightened risk due to community factors, it is important to know which services are most helpful to them, and when and where they can be implemented to reduce the amount of PTSD, depressive symptoms, and functional impairment this population faces. Support groups appear to have a significant impact on bereaved adolescents.
