“What is a Death Doula?” – Online – Tuesday, December 5, 2023 (2 pm – 3:30 pm central time)
Description: This program will provide information about the work and role of death doulas. We will examine how death doulas reduce fears and support care teams while walking their clients and loved ones home.
Upon completion of this program, the participant will be able to:
∙ Understand the general role that death doulas play in our community.
∙ Identify some of the many services that death doulas provide and services they do not provide.
∙ Recognize the ways that death doulas reduce end-of-life fears and anxiety.
∙ Recognize how death doulas, therapists, and others can support clients in transition and their care teams.
The link will be sent out before the session begins. You’ll get 1.5 CEUs through the Continuing Education Institute of Illinois. I’d also welcome caregivers, patients, and curious participants. Please join us! Each session also includes an “Ask a Doula” Q&A at the end where I’ll answer all your questions.
