Abstract

Approximately 39–49% of college students have experienced grief due to death in the past 24 months. Students’ grief is often complicated due to the nature of their developmental characteristics (e.g., searching for autonomy, identity development, career direction, academic pressure, and formation of intimate relationships). Group mindfulness-based interventions may help alleviate symptoms associated with grief. In this article, we discuss integration of mindfulness-based techniques in a college counseling group to support bereaved college students.
