ODL 271: Helping at the Crossroads: End-of-Life, Ethics, Grief, Rituals and Much More


5 Credit Hours: Grief is a normal response of sorrow, heartache, and confusion after losing someone or something important to that person. Helping professionals are often called upon to help others through their grief and loss even when they are experiencing those same feelings. Feelings of grief and loss can be compounded when circumstances surrounding the loss are traumatic as well. In this course we will discuss the ethics of end of life care through a complex case scenario review, as well as discuss other tools professionals can use to deal with grief and loss in traumatic situations. To fully participate in this workshop, participants will need to have a candle, lighter, something to take notes with, and journal.
