Grief and Loss Consultation Group

The Transcending Model of Grief and Loss is designed to help counselors recognize the spaces that grief can bring people to, as well as how to navigate those spaces. It is a way to conceptualize the process that loss entails for integration. Grief is not a problem to solve, but a human experience that we need to join each other in.  This model is not a map in that it spells out a step by step guide on how to resolve the pain from grief, but rather a framework to help the clients recognize and figure out how to navigate their personal grief journey.  Drs Sonya Lorelle and Katie Atkins offer twice a month open  consultation groups for learning how to apply the TMGL in counseling.  These consultation groups are for counselors working with all clients that are experiencing all types of loss, not just death related losses.  The groups will help counselors to: 

•Normalize Grief: It is an inevitable and human experience and ongoing throughout life

•Recognize Grief: Counselors need to see it and name it to help clients navigate these spaces  

•Individualize the Grief Process: Grief is not a prescriptive process

•Conceptualize Grief for Treatment Planning: Should be viewed through a developmental lens
