Finding One’s Self in the Journey of Grief and Transformation from Loss
Rev. Dr. Ted Wiard, Ed.D., LPCC, CGC
The opportunity of transforming from futility to passion, and disconnect to connection is possible. This lecture will explore the magical abilities of healing from loss through the natural and normal grief process. Dr. Wiard’s discussion will give insights into what happens within the brain and body after loss, insights into the grief process, the difference between trauma, loss, and grief, as well as other aspects of the grief process. These intellectual handholds are the keys to emotional healing and transformation from loss.
Rev. Dr. Ted Wiard Ed.D, LPCC, CGC, has spent the last 20 years working with transformation from loss through the lens of his own experiences and as a therapist, researcher, and author. He founded Golden Willow Retreat outside of Taos, NM, which is an emotional healing sanctuary focused on loss, trauma, and grief. He owns Golden Willow Counseling, a behavioral health center in Taos, NM and is the clinical director of the Rio Grande Treatment Center which is focused on addiction and recovery. Ted co-authored Witnessing Ted: The Journey to Potential through Grief and Loss. Ted’s passion is to support healthy transformation for people, families, communities, and organizations in the midst of change.
