Abstract: This research Study oversees the effect of homicide on family members of their loved one. Losing a family member without any notice is hard. It takes a toll emotionally, mentally and leaves family members in sometimes total confusion. The Cincinnati Police Department Victims Assistance Liaison Unit holds monthly support groups for family members, friends, and anyone who has lost a loved one to homicide. To see how one's attending feel after the support group, this study goes over a survey that is completed at the end of each support group with a mood scale that each attendee can use to rate their mood at the end of the group. The goal of the survey is to see how many of those attending feel supported.
