Conversing with Death

Conversing with Death is now available on live video. This modern ability to teach professionals in the convenience of their own homes and offices anywhere in the US is an excellent way to learn about a unique existential method hard to come by even in our educational systems. The professional will gain a basic understanding of Conversing with Death and experience exercises carefully designed to bring her closer to mental and emotional patterns common in end of life care. More than a simple intellectual conversation about death, isn't it? At the end of the workshop, the trained caregiver will not only gain insight into personal questions about life and death, but also deepen her professional experience with patients or clients. Truly a must for clergy, counselors, psychologists, social workers, physicians, and nurses. Cost: $220 for a group setting (minimum of four) or $95 for an individual. Time: 75-minutes.

The Role of the Hospice Caregiver

Whether one is moving into the field of hospice for the first time or is well-seasoned as a professional caregiver, he or she has a significant chance of encountering some surprising hindrances that could mentally eradicate the caregiver’s emotional balance.

This online course reevaluates the basic understanding of caregiving to achieve balance in this altruistic trade and provides the necessary tools to help the caregiver maintain a healthy balance in the field while providing quality service to patients and their family members.

The Spiritual and Religious Makeup of the Hospice Caregiver

The purpose of this course is to examine how the healthcare professional’s spiritual and religious makeup influences the role he or she plays in the field of hospice. In studying the fabric of knowledge that transcends science, the course neither labels one religion or practice as good or bad, nor does it deny any claims of spiritual experiences or awakenings. The primary objective of this course is to lay credence to the psychological and cultural factors on spiritual and religious development, and to understand its strengths and limitations as it interacts with the prioritizing value hospice takes in serving a religiously diverse community. Questions the study will entertain here are as follows:
  • How do the professional’s absolute beliefs come about in the first place? Here the development of religious or spiritual ideas is explored only from cultural and psychological perspectives.
  • Are there strengths and limitations to any one perceived universal spiritual or religious belief as it works alongside an organizations’ mindset to deliver equal care to all faiths?
  • How can the professional work around an organization’s mission to a religiously or spiritually diverse community without feeling like he or she has compromised convictions?

While the subject of spirituality or religion is often handed down in hospice to the chaplain, every discipline is still at the forefront of the tugs and pulls fueled by one’s set of beliefs. Thus while this course can benefit all the disciplines, including the chaplain, the audience here is primarily the licensed nurse.
