Course content:

When facing end of life, how others behave around you is crucial, especially your therapist. Attending this course will enable you to be more aware with your clients, know what questions to ask, how to be with them, and what can be done to help them have the best end of life possible.

Most therapists, when faced with clients coming to terms with a terminal diagnosis, will bring their empathetic and listening skills to the forefront. However, there is much more than you can do to enable you to be at your best when working with these clients. This includes facing the fact that, you too, will die one day. For some of us, this thought is more bearable than for others, but the fact remains that 100% of us will die. Knowing the ins and outs of what this means for yourself, as well as for your clients, is a major way you can enhance your abilities with your clients. 

  • By the end of this one-day workshop you will:
  • Know the five most important elements when working in this way
  • How to be in yourself to best support and facilitate their end of life
  • Have faced your own end of life and what that means in the consulting room
  • Understood the principles and practices of loss and anticipatory grief 
  • Know the four most important questions to be asked when someone is terminally il
