In the course of counselling, you may come across clients who foresee their own impending death and separation from their loved ones through different dying trajectories.  This training will introduce meaning-oriented perspectives to examine death anxiety and pre-death grief as experienced by those diagnosed with a terminal illness.  It will also equip you with meaning reconstructive tools to support these clients for life review and preservation of sense of self, as well as facing their end of life and eventual death. 


  • Examine the threat of death and its implications from meaning-oriented perspectives

  • Develop essential skills in facilitating the quest of meaning in the face of terminal illness and death


  • Understanding of the implied losses and grief along different dying trajectories

  • Processing of death anxiety and pre-death grief from meaning-oriented perspectives

  • Application of meaning reconstructive intervention tools

    • Use of Virtual Dream Stories

    • My Life Footprints

    • Feast of My Life
