A Grief Trajectory – Lynn Shiner and Lisa Zoll
According to Fredrik Backman in A Man Called Ove, death is a strange thing. It is also perplexing, puzzling, and mysterious. It is a unique and unpredictable process for each person, and responses are highly personal. There have been scholarly attempts to put the process into stages, states, and tasks. While these efforts provide a roadmap for clinicians who treat individuals experiencing grief, there is little that can be done to harness the grieving process into a straight path that can easily be followed by those who grieve.
Lisa Zoll, LCSW and Lynn Shiner have created a new model for how we look at the journey of grief: the event, the work, and the forever. It is designed with the following shortcomings of traditional models: it eliminates stages, expectations, expected order of stages, timeframes, and closure.
