Support group established for young widows, widowers

Maxine Hart Weinstein, PhD

Are you grieving the loss of a spouse? Do you need support, resources, and a safe environment for open expression and discussion?

You need not suffer through your grief and loss alone. A bereavement group of non-denominational young widows and widowers, ages 40 to 65, will meet every other Wednesday for 90 minutes to support each other as they grieve the loss of a spouse.

The first introductory meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 16, 5:30 p.m., in the offices of psychologist Dr. Maxine Hart Weinstein, PhD, 6601 SW 80 St., Suite 202, in South Miami.

Dr. Weinstein will facilitate and guide all meetings of the group, “Remember, Love, Share.”

During the introductory meeting participants will have an opportunity to meet and speak with Dr. Weinstein while connecting and interacting with other group members who share their experience. The group will serve as an intimate, safe, and constant space for grieving spouses to express themselves, share their feelings, and support each other as each move through the bereavement process.

“In my practice I discovered a huge void in services for this specific demographic,” Dr. Weinstein said. “‘Remember, Love, Share’ is a group for those who have lost a spouse or significant other, and are approaching or in middle age, possibly still in the work force, and maintain a vibrant and youthful lifestyle. Their needs and emotional health are very different from that of older ‘seniors’ who are bereaved.”

Dr. Weinstein has been practicing in South Florida for more than 30 years. She graduated with a PhD in psychology in 1977 from the University of Miami, and held as adjunct professor at the University of Miami. She has served as a professional consultant to a variety of local nursing homes, and facilitated workshops for several professional and community groups such as the Florida Association of Clinical Hypnosis and Florida Association of Death & Dying. Dr. Weinstein is on staff at Baptist and South Miami hospitals.
