Description

I am going to listen to people’s stories more and give them space to breathe

This intensive two day workshop gives an overview of grief theory and the practices around working with people facing end of life.  It draws on international research and explores the challenges of working with people and their extended family/whānau.

It is enriched through personal stories of grief from individual community members and through small group discussion and interaction.

The course is targeted at health professionals and/or community and social care workers.

It is presented by Mary Potter staff including counsellors, psychotherapists, social workers, Māori and Pasifika liaison workers and spiritual carers.

We also draw on expertise from our partners in the community to bring further expertise to the table such as Skylight, an organisation dedicated to working with children and young people and their family/whānau.

Learning Outcomes:

  • The palliative holistic approach to grief and loss
  • Communicating across cultures in times of loss
  • Tools and techniques for navigating difficult conversations
  • Caring for oneself while supporting others in grief
  • Mindfulness, meditation and healing presence
