Spiritual Perspectives and Spiritual Distress at the End of Life
This study day is for all professionals who work with people with a life-limiting condition or with people as they near the end of their life. This in-depth study day will help you gain more confidence in defining what spirituality is and working with those in spiritual distress.
The day will be led by our Pastoral Care Team.
What will I study?
By using group work and open discussion the day will seek to:
- Define spirituality, particularly in the context of life-limiting illness.
- Define the concept of a good death and whether current practices meet the expectations of the dying.
- Explore and characterise the nature of suffering.
- Recognise spiritual distress.
- Identify ways that care-givers can address the spiritual distress of their patients.
- Discover the potential for healing in those people with life limiting illness
