Grief Support Group FAQ

What is the purpose of a grief group?
We provide techniques for dealing with grief, support for the process of grief, an environment to meet other people who are grieving and identify support systems.

Who may participate in the group?
Anyone who has experienced the loss of a loved one, whether it’s hospice-related or not. Due to the nature of the materials we cover, it’s preferred that participants are older teens and above. Younger children can be referred to community resources who deal specifically with children and their unique grief responses.

Is there a cost to be in the group?
No. As a non-profit hospice agency, we provide these groups free of charge to anyone in our community who is dealing with a loss.

What are the time frames for the groups?
Each group meets once per week for six weeks. Each session is 1.5 hours in length. Sometimes we offer a daytime group but most groups are in the evening hours. These groups are held in various locations around the Oklahoma City metro area.

Can people join the group at any time?
Because of the progressive nature of the materials being covered, it is preferable that new people not join the group after the second session.

Do you have ground rules for the group?
Yes. The ground rules are simple and basic. First, we respect confidentiality of everyone in the group. Second, we expect each participant to be honest with themselves in this process. Then, we must allow each person the freedom to grieve according to their own personality. These ground rules are built upon the premise of respect for one another.
