Reconceptualizing Grief: Developmental Considerations for Counseling Clients Experiencing Loss

Developmental Considerations for Counseling Clients Experiencing Loss, introduces the Transcending Model of Grief and Loss (TMGL).  The TMGL is a framework to help counselors recognize the impact of the variety of losses beyond death people experience. The model outlines the spaces in which people may find themselves when experiencing grief responses and shares how loss changes the terrain of life. This model helps to normalize grief and loss. While the pain that people experience can be intimidating and scary to face, it is also a significant and inevitable human experience. The TMGL also helps to individualize the grieving process. Many factors can impact this process and it is important to understand unique complexities of this process. Finally, the model helps to conceptualize grief from a holistic and developmental lens.
