Description: 

Topics include the dying process, hands-on comfort measures, hospice and palliative care, doula scope of practice, active listening, self care, natural after death care, creating ritual. An end-of-life doula accompanies the dying person and their loved ones in the final days and weeks of life, providing resources, education and companionship for those who accept dying as a period of life, not just an abrupt ending. End-of-life doulas represent a new frontier in the doula profession, traditionally centered on birth and postpartum support, and are an outgrowth of recent cultural trends favoring natural death care. Designed for family members and friends of the dying, hospice and palliative care workers, midwives and doulas, clergy, therapists, life coaches, and anyone who wants to prepare for their own death. Not recommended for the recently bereaved.
