Curriculum Vitae
Rev. Dr. Terri Daniel 
Interfaith Chaplain
​Certified ClinicalTrauma Professional, IATP
Certified in Death, Dying and Bereavement, ADEC |  707-827-3156


I’m seeking opportunities to teach courses on death, dying and bereavement in an adjunct, part-time or online capacity, and also hope to find a post-doctoral research position where I can do a quantitative study on the topic of my doctoral dissertation... Toxic Theology as a Contributing Factor in Complicated Grief. I’ve been facilitating workshops and seminars in this field for ten years, and currently teach online for the San Francisco Theological Seminary. I"m  certified in death, dying and bereavement by The Association for Death Education and Counseling (ADEC), and in trauma support by The International Association of Trauma Professionals (IATP). I'm also the author of four books on death and grief, and have extensive experience as an educator/workshop facilitator, and in supporting the dying and the bereaved in both group and one-on-one settings.
