When Death Comes: What Death Teaches Us About Living

Death and loss are the universal human experience. Many clients seek counseling as they attempt to make meaning in the face of mortality issues or grief experiences due to death and/or loss. Counselors are called to provide attuned and empathetic support throughout this process, although there has been scant exploration as to how counselor death anxieties may influence our values, worldview, biases, and defenses. In this interactive workshop, a significant part of our time together will be spent engaging in personal and experiential exploration of death, dying, mortality, and the vulnerabilities of the creaturely body. Reflections generated from these exercises will be our bridge into discussion of how our personal death anxieties may manifest in the therapeutic encounter.

Course Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to discuss their personal relationship with death and dying.
  • Participants will be able to describe common physical and psychological signs and symptoms of the dying process.
  • Participants will be able to identify possible signals of covert death anxiety.
