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 of death anxiety and preparatory grief as experienced by the dying.  It will also equip you with meaning reconstructive tools to support the person with terminal illness for life review and preservation of sense of self, as well as facing his/her end of life and eventual death.

  • 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
