Analysis of Support Groups:  Participation of Palestinian Widows and Mourners in Support Groups to Relieve the Psychological and Social Pressures Resulting From Loss

Since 1967, the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory has created various kinds of loss. Palestinians have suffered from material loss (such as destruction of houses, confiscation of land, burning of possessions) as well as spiritual loss due to Israeli military measures, including curfews, administrative detention and imprisonment. On the one hand, these measures have deprived Palestinians of their personal freedoms. On the other hand, Palestinians have suffered humanitarian loss, such as permanently disabling and fatal injuries. During the second Intifada, Palestinian families have been experiencing all these types of loss yet again. In this summary, we will attempt to convey a clear idea of the work undertaken within the support groups that were organized in this project, as well as analyze the content of the participating women’s rhetoric.
