End of Life Skills: Honoring the dignity of a life well lived

Dr Chris Kavelin

1. Do we know how to acknowledge & honor the goodness in others?

2. Do we know how to interact when we face people with terminal illness or toward the end of their journey?

The population of 65-85 year olds in Australia is set to double to 4 million in the next 7 years (2022). The deathrate in the community is also set to double over the next two decades.  There is a growing demand for counsellors that are able to provide end of life counselling and assistance in navigating grief.

This  accredited professional development provides tools for surviving and even thriving through the roller coaster of emotions in facing death undefined practices that sustain the dying and those that love them throughout the journey. In this course you will acquire skills in giving your clients a language to navigate and express their greatest challenges of grief; learn strategies for empowering positive end of life planning that enables healing within families and offers a sense of continued connection and meaning after the passing of loved ones. Participants will also learn strategies of practical wisdom around death and dying shared from Indigenous communities around the world.

Dr. Chris Kavelin has taught Spirituality and Social Transformation at Macquarie University for 10 years. Chris has worked with networks of traditional healers around the world including Native American, Maori and Aboriginal. He has worked closely with Heads of State in the Pacific in helping create national systems of traditional health.

Dr Kavelin's workshop runs to 1.30 representing 4 hours PD and is followed by 2 hours Supervision provided by Theodore Dimopoulos from 2.30 to 4.30.
