Lund, Dale A.; Caserta, Michael S.
Omega: Journal of Death and Dying, v25 n1 p47-61 1992
Investigated bereaved spouses' assessments of participation in self-help groups consisting of 8 weekly meetings with (n=52) or without (n=82) additional 10 monthly meetings. Regardless of group duration or leadership by professional or widowed peer, assessments were positive. Most commonly reported benefit participants hoped to gain was emotional support. Nonsignificant trends seemed to favor long-term groups. (Author/NB)
