Dealing with the weight of grief?
“As therapists, we think that we know how to work with trauma, grief and loss – and we do somewhat – but Kim’s fund of knowledge goes far beyond the training available in most graduate counseling programs.”
– Victoria Howard, PhD, LPC, Naropa University core faculty (retired)

What did your grief education look like?
Researchers investigated grief and loss education in six university programs: medicine, nursing, counseling, psychology, social work, and occupational therapy. Of the six curriculums, only the counseling program included a dedicated grief and loss unit.

Kim Mooney, certified Thanatologist
We’ve learned a lot about healthy grief in the last several decades and, just as importantly, how to support clients, patients and co-workers. While every setting may require a slightly different approach and set of skills, helping people feel seen and understood after a significant loss is one key to maintaining successful and nourishing relationships. Knowing how to balance compassionate responses with professional roles is the other.
Practically Dying’s Lunch and Learn series was designed to address these issues, and more. The format is designed to create an atmosphere to explore, share and grow. The tools we leave with change our lives as well as those whose lives we touch.JOIN THE COMMUNITY
What I truly appreciated about Kim's group was the excellent content - information about the many shades of grief, different approaches to support, and the evolution of grief theory. Kim brings decades of professional expertise, powerfully rooted in compassion, humor, warmth and a presence that is healing to those experiencing loss.Heidi Wilson, Psychotherapist
Kim's grief class was the answer to a prayer. I was looking for a class focusing on grief, aspects of grief and theories about grief, and this class filled all of my needs. I learned a lot from Kim and feel more able to support others and myself.Rosemary Lohndorff, MA

Develop your skills to support those in grief.
Gain strength in understanding how to help your clients manage the challenge of overwhelming grief.
Many people seek help from spiritual, mental health, medical or therapeutic practitioners for issues that involve loss. A skilled counselor helps them resolve their issues with appropriate interventions, but they are also schooled in the importance of walking alongside of them in their grief without trying to ‘fix it.’
