The follow are links to resources for widows, and then information pertaining to The Widows’ Handbook and its creation.
Resources for Widows
Modern Loss – (information about camps for people of all ages who have suffered losses, newsletters with useful essays, etc.)
Hope for Widows – (support system for, and developed by, widowed women. Helps connect new widows with other widows to offer peer-to-peer support and other resources.)
(Note: The website for The Widdahood is currently not functioning)
The W Connection (widows helping widows)
Camp Widow (regional gatherings, several each year)
The Widowed Village (groups and resources for women & men)
Also, search ‘Spousal Bereavement Groups’ for links in your area, if you think a face-to-face group setting would be helpful. Some people like them, others prefer the on-line group support connections.
