Abstract : The need for bereavement services to help support individuals going through grief and heal successfully is an essential need in the society. This work made use of Cognitive behavioral therapy CBT as a therapeutic module for the group sessions of selected group of individuals going through grief. Assessment incorporates clinical observations, client self-reporting, evidence based tools/questionnaires, and diagnostic criterion found within the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders Fifth Edition (DSM-5), a preliminary diagnosis of Persistent Complex Bereavement Disorder (PCBD) was determined and studied. It is therefore found that there was a significant drop below the clinically significant mark of 4.0 by the end of the 10 week treatment and final submission of the BGQ, and is further found that given the recommended 20-25 Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) sessions, the group’s score resulted in elimination of all/nearly all symptoms of PCBD experienced by group members.
