FAQs About HOPE Groups

Q: What makes the HOPE spousal loss groups different than other grief groups?

A: There are several things that make our spousal loss groups different and effective in helping individuals through their grief.

1. All of our groups are facilitated by licensed therapists who are trained and skilled in grief and group process. 

2. The HOPE Connection groups are the oldest bereavement groups in Los Angeles. The main spousal loss groups are arranged by months of grieving. We can have as many as six groups being run on the same evening. Group 1 will include people who are only at one-four months since their loss.  At five months, that individual will move to Group 2 and be with people who are at five-eight months since their loss. As you go through our groups, you also walk through two years of your grief. These are open groups — individuals are welcome to join at any time.
