Bereavement naturally results in the “dark night of the soul,” writes Dr. Wolfelt. A central need of those in grief is to rejuvenate the spirit, to discover a reason to get one’s feet out of bed in the morning. Among the learning objectives for this inspiring training are the following:

  • To provide an in-depth understanding of the concept of spiritual care of the mourner.
  • To enhance understanding of specific ways to provide spiritual support to the mourner.
  • To provide a comprehensive spiritual assessment tool.
  • To model respect for the mourner’s personal experience of their faith/spirituality.
  • To outline specific spiritual practices that can be used to minister to the mourner.
  • To create ways to sustain hope when the mourner feels suspended from those things that make life worth living.
  • To explore potential barriers to the spiritual care of the mourner.
  • To apply Dr. Wolfelt’s 11 Tenets of “companioning” to assist in the facilitation of the “psycho-spiritual WHY work” of the mourner.
