DRN Training Module 8

Compassionate Presence:
Being with the Dying and Those Who Grieve

Sunday, October 25, 2020
10:00 - 11:30 a.m.

Virginia Waters, Ph.D

 Free for NYSPA Members


This module will cover the topic of being present for those who are journeying through the dying experience. It will discuss how to be present without judgment with yourself so you can be fully present for those who are transitioning out of their bodies. It will familiarize you with what the dying want us to know and describe how we can be most helpful to them in terms of words and behaviors. Resources will be provided.

     I will also discuss being present for those whom grieve, how to connect with grievers, what to say and what not to say as well as how to connect in a supportive, nonjudgmental way. Resources and references will be provided as well as an outline for creating a Bereavement support group.


Pre-registration is required for this event.

Zoom meeting information will be sent in each registration confirmation email and resent to all registrants on the Friday prior to the meeting.
