Glossary of Terms

Therapeutic Process Group (TPG): 

Anticipatory Grief:  refers to grieving that occurs prior to the actual loss. Many deaths occur with some forewarning and it is during this period of anticipation that the potential survivor/potential deceased begins the task of mourning and begins to experience the various responses of grief. (i.e., you or a loved one may have been given a diagnosis of a terminal illness).

Somatics: "Somatics is the field which studies the soma: namely the body as perceived from within by first-person perception. When a human being is observed from the outside-i.e., from a third-person viewpoint- the phenomenon of a human body is perceived. But when the  this same human being is observed from the first-person viewpoint of his own proprioceptive senses, a categorically different phenomenon is perceived: the human soma". (Hanna, p. 341, as cited from Hanlon, 1995) 

Debrief: "Debriefing psychology is concerned with attempting to lessen or prevent psychological damage in crisis victims by utilizing specialized debriefing methods." (as cited from www.defriefing.com) To debrief is a term that may also be used to describe a Mental Health Professional who facilitates trauma therapy to clients or patients and who utilizes this practice with another Mental Health Professional to lessen or prevent the counter-transference of psychological damage to himself or herself.

Soulstretch:  if you google Soul Stretch you will likely find yoga services. When I google searched Soul Stretch, "Soul Stretch Yoga", and "Soul Stretch Christian Yoga" result. Neither are related to Soulstretch. My Soulstretch is not considered yoga. I began teaching stretch classes in 1986 based upon Bob Anderson's "Stretching." I stopped teaching in the 90's; however,  I continue a personal practice of stretching. Through the years I have dedicated my life to seeking soul in all aspects of my life. Soulstretch incorporates both the physiological aspect stretching that Bob Anderson's "Stretching" instructs and the depth of the experience of stretching that I entertain in all aspects of my life. 

Soul: Many definitions for such a seemingly small word! I suggest you do your own research and explore your own experiences and define soul according to those accounts.
