The focus of the consumer driven culture in which we live is on the young and the healthy. Yet Americans are aging, baby-boomers are retiring, and people of all ages are touched by loved ones who are facing the end of their lives. These situations present unique challenges and opportunities to search for, perhaps find, or even make meaning of our lives. This interactive workshop will deepen participants’ knowledge of end of life issues and provide tools to help clients address these issues. Topics will include death anxiety, spirituality, family dynamics, the hospice philosophy, “personal death awareness,” advance directives, difficult conversations, and care of the care giver.
