Working with Adults Facing Death

  • 04/25/2023

What do you need to consider when you know someone is aware they are dying or facing their death? How do you talk to someone who is dying? What informs our practice and ensures best practice? Many would argue that the grief process starts before death. If this is true then what are the implications for the individual, their family or friends and professionals of considering grief through the course of an illness? This workshop will reflect on how we can help people facing death to carefully explore what is important to them and what would support their emotional wellbeing. It will examine whether preparation for and warning of a death can play a positive role in later grieving. We will look at the demanding, often challenging and conflicting issues that arise for people who are ill and what we might do or say to support them. The main focus will be on the needs of adults, but we will also consider the needs of children. The format will include presentation, group discussions and it will be experiential and interactive throughout. It is advisable that those experiencing a recent loss or close bereavement should not attend this workshop.
