About Dr. Jason Troyer
I'm a psychology professor, former counselor, grief researcher, speaker and consultant for businesses who want to better serve grieving families.
I have my PhD in Counseling Psychology from the University of Kansas. I am a psychology professor at a small college in East Tennessee where I teach courses on death and dying, counseling, abnormal psychology, and related topics. I have experience counseling and completing psychological assessments in community mental health centers, college counseling centers and a VA hospital. I have also led grief counseling groups at churches and colleges.
I am Certified in Thanatology (CT) and a member of the Association for Death Education and Counseling. I have given numerous lectures and presentations on grief and death including a webinar and research presentations for ADEC. My research focuses primarily on the grief experiences of widowers, men's grief, pet loss, and the use of grief rituals. I have written a book on helping widowers titled Counseling Widowers.
