Course Description

Through interactive discussion, personal reflection and break-out rooms participants will explore societal and personal attitudes towards death and dying as a means of understanding their own level of comfort or discomfort with the topic. In doing so participants will be able to increase self-awareness and confidence in being able to provide better support to clients who are facing grief, bereavement, death and loss. The current socio-political context, including COVID and racial injustice, will be used as a means of further exploration of how this topic is affecting clinicians and clients in this unique time in our collective humanity.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  1. Increase self-awareness of personal death attitudes.
  2. Build a foundation being more comfortable discussing issues of death and dying.
  3. Be able to apply concepts learned to direct clinical practice with clients.
