The Volunteer Support Services Programme has plans to bring you more online training for your palliative care volunteers.
We have asked the experts from the Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement to tailor an online workshop that will best meet the needs of volunteers working in the field of palliative care.
“Supporting those Before and After a Death” will be offered on Tuesday 23 February 2021.
The topics covered in this training are:
- Describe what is meant by anticipatory grief, in light of current theory and practice in the field of grief counselling
- Identify a range of strategies that can be used to support people before and after death
- Apply the concept of ‘living into loss’ when working with grieving individuals
- Be aware of how anticipatory grief can impact on professionals working in the field
Like our January workshop we expect Volunteers to attend either in a group facilitated by their Volunteer Manager or individually, all via Zoom.
Save the date in your calendars. More details to come closer to the event.
