Description

Even as a grief expert, David was unprepared for the sudden death of his son, who died at age 21. People asked him, “What’s it like for the grief expert to lose his son?” He would answer, “The grief expert did not lose his son, the father did.” Everything he knew about grief turned out to be true. David had to go through the five stages of grief but found himself left wanting more from the experience – he wanted to find meaning in his life after such a terrible loss.  He learned that broken heart syndrome is real and he realized he would either die of it or live with it, and that healing occurs not when grief gets smaller, but when life gets bigger.  This led to the discovery of the 6th stage of grief – finding meaning.  

Based on David Kessler’s newest book, Finding Meaning: The Sixth Stage of Grief, this seminar recording is designed to help professionals guide people through life’s worst moments to find meaning after loss.  All types of loss will be covered, including betrayal, loss of a parent or family member, and loss due to addiction, mental illness and suicide.        

After attending this seminar recording, you will be able to enhance your work with those who have dealt with any kind of loss. It will fill you with new insight, tools, strategies, and inspiring information, leaving you looking forward to the next day… so you can immediately begin to use all you have learned! 

Don't miss this opportunity to learn from one of the world's leading grief experts - purchase today!

“People always want to know if there is life after death for their loved ones. I believe there is, but more importantly, there is life after death for the living. I want to help them find meaning that honors their loved ones. Sometimes when we are at our worst, we can find our best.”  -David Kessler

David is honored to have received permission from The Elisabeth Kübler-Ross Family and The Elisabeth Kübler-Ross Foundation to add a sixth stage to her renowned 5 stages of grief.
