Integrating personal and professional experiences: Seven phases to integrating loss and grief.

Rosemary Wanganeen

2011

This paper will discuss the "next generation" loss and grief model, the Seven Phases to Integrating Loss and Grief. It is a model that was not dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century; rather, there seemed to be a readiness for it. That said, it took five years to design; its Aboriginal designer endured a major loss experience that became the foundation upon which to build the model; hence it is a non-academic model. In broad terms, this innovative and revolutionary model will discuss loss and grief from a human experience using Rosemary Wanganeen's personal story as a "case study" - putting a face to the statistics.
