The physical, psychological and spiritual processes of death
Working with people who are dying can
be an incredibly challenging aspect of the role of practitioners.
Witnessing people at their most vulnerable can often leave practitioners
feeling overwhelmed, helpless and uncomfortable. This workshop focuses
on the physical, psychological and spiritual process of dying and the
subsequent support needs of both the patient and their loved ones.
The workshop is aimed at all
professionals who are working with people who are dying such as
counsellors, psychologists, palliative care workers, pastoral care
workers, social workers, nurses and doctors.
At the conclusion of this workshop participants will be able to:
- Understand the physical, psychological and spiritual processes of death and dying
- Identify and understand the psychological and spiritual needs of the dying
- Develop psychological, spiritual and practical strategies to better support someone who is dying
- Gain overall confidence in being able to support the dying
