  • Abstract: Accessible summary We held a bereavement and loss group for people with learning disabilities. The group ran for 8 weeks and there were five adults who came to the group. The group helped people to share their feelings and experiences to help them cope with their bereavement. Summary 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.
