Good Grief Facilitator

Facilitator Dr Linda Machin

Dr Linda Machin


Dr Linda Machin trained as a Medical Social Worker and went on to conduct pioneering bereavement work for the Anglican Diocese of Lichfield. She published training material for people working with the bereaved and established a bereavement counselling and support service in North Staffordshire before going on to take up an academic post teaching social work and counselling at Keele University.

Linda developed the Range of Response to Loss model as a framework for conceptualising grief and an associated measure for exploring diverse grief reactions, the Adult Attitude to Grief scale. These ideas are developed fully in her book, Working with Loss and Grief (Sage, 2nd ed. 2014).

Linda is an Honorary Research Fellow of Keele University and an Honorary Researcher at the International Observatory on End of Life Care at Lancaster University.
