This group is cost-free and open to anyone age 18 and over in Wisconsin who has experienced losing someone close to them to a domestic violence homicide.

Group will have facilitators but will follow a peer-support rather than therapeutic/clinical approach.
Our goals for offering this group:
- Validating the unique and complex experiences of traumatic grief after a domestic violence homicide.
- Increasing the retelling and honoring of the life of your loved one as a counterbalance to the repetitive retelling of their death.
- Providing education about formal and informal resources and support available, what your rights are when dealing with the media, and what to expect as a case moves through the criminal justice system.
- Increasing personal coping strategies and promoting healing.
