Finding Meaning in Loss: The Sixth Stage of Grief



Many clients look for “closure” after a loss, but the process of finding meaning and a clear direction out of their pain can transform therapy into a deeper, more hopeful experience. How can therapists help their clients shift from simply exploring pain to experiencing healing and even posttraumatic growth? Learn new ways to help your clients relate to their suffering and move on in a way that honours the loved one they’ve lost. You’ll explore how to: 

  • Identify strategies to address guilt, shame, and stigma in special circumstances, such as child loss, sibling loss, parental loss, addiction, death by suicide and pandemic losses  
  • Develop a better understanding of the strength and limitations of the Kubler-Ross’s stage model as well as how a new stage can enhance posttraumatic growth and resiliency 
  • Explore powerful techniques for using grounded positive psychology to help witness vs. “fixing” grief
