603 - 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 post-traumatic growth? Learn new ways to help your clients relate to their suffering and move on in a way that honors 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 stage model as well as how a new stage can enhance post-traumatic growth and resiliency 
  • Explore powerful techniques for using grounded positive psychology to help witness vs. “fixing” grief 

David Kessler, MA, RN, is an expert on healing after loss. He is the author of six books, including his latest Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief. He’s written books with Elisabeth Kubler-Ross and Louise Hay.
