Event description

Description

As end-of-life professionals or caregivers, we may at times be invited into conversations with patients or family members that addresses religious views on death and the afterlife. Meeting people "where they are" in terms of belief systems is a delicate art that requires patience, wisdom and skill.

​How do we offer compassionate listening and support for beliefs that may not resonate with our own? How can we honor the other person's reality fully and lovingly, without imposing our own views and biases?

In this presentation, you will learn to:

  • Understand multi-cultural views of death and grief.

  • Facilitate interfaith pastoral conversations

  • Identify where clients are in stages of faith development

  • Address clients' spiritual questions about death and beyond
