Event description

Description

People often seek help when they are facing one or more of life's essential challenges, such as aging, mourning, wanting more out of life, dealing with injustices, deciding when to fight, and other quandaries. How can we help them at these times?


Learning Objectives:

1. Participants will be able to name some sources of suffering they encounter in people seeking treatment.

2. Participants will be able to apply insights from poetry and other forms of literature to the work they do.

3. Participants will learn some ways of helpfully witnessing and accompanying people who are suffering.
