  • To conceptualize the impacts of separation on one's life using attachment-related theories

  • To apply meaning-oriented intervention tools to facilitate one's continuing bond after the loss



  • Our Braided Paths

To revisit the "Back Story" of relationship

  • Object Stories

To re-introduce the deceased significant one

  • Tree of Legacy

To integrate and extend the relational stories

  • Use of Chair Work

To reopen the dialogue and say the unsaid
