This chapter provides a template for conducting school-based grief support groups for elementary and secondary students. The template supplies school-based mental health professionals with an easy-to-replicate structure for hosting psychoeducational strengths-based grief support group sessions. Guidance is provided on how to ensure a smooth-running group in the school setting and how to handle sensitive issues such as student confidentiality. Special considerations for different age groups are offered. School-based bereavement groups educate students about grief, normalize the grief process, teach healthy coping skills for managing grief reactions, and facilitate connections with other students who are experiencing similar losses.
