Spiritual Perspectives and Spiritual Distress at the End of Life
This study day is for all professionals working with people towards the end of their lives who would like to develop more confidence in defining what spirituality is and working with those in spiritual distress.
This study day will be led by our Pastoral Care Team Leader and other members of hospice staff and will explore spiritual or religious attitudes toward sickness, death, afterlife and mourning.
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 characterize 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.
