The authors explore possibilities for the functions of professionals as coordinators for self-help groups, drawing on the experience of a Montreal YM/YWHA's "Widow-to-Widow Project." The project was a peer self-help group for newly widowed women to help them cope with emotional, social, educational and career issues.
