Boyden, Paul; Freeman, Adele; Offen, Liz
British Journal of Learning Disabilities, v38 n1 p35-40 Mar 2010
Following evidence based literature, the Birmingham Clinical Psychology Service for People with Learning Disabilities ran a Loss and Bereavement Psychotherapy Group. The group consisted of five adults with mild learning disabilities, who met for 8 consecutive weeks. This paper reports the process of setting up a bereavement group for people with learning disabilities, detailing the development of session plans and structure of the group. The authors encourage allied health professionals to consider setting up similar groups within their learning disabilities services, bearing in mind reflections on practical issues highlighted within this paper.
