Mind the Gap: a professional development course for health professionals addressing mental health and psychological distress for people living with advanced chronic and terminal illness in the last year of life
Endorsed CPD: 2 day workshop

This course will support and enhance the skills and knowledge required by Health Care Professionals across a variety of health care settings, to effectively acknowledge and respond to the complex mental health needs and psychological issues of people living with an advanced chronic and terminal illness, and that of their family and caregivers as they approach the last year of life. Health Care Professionals, especially Social Workers, encounter people living with the impacts of advanced chronic and terminal illness or their families and loved ones. Knowing how to screen and assess for psychological distress or mental health issues and then having access to evidence based therapeutic skills and knowledge to respond appropriately and in a timely, patient centered manner can impact positively on the individual's quality of life and that of their loved ones.

17 June 2016 Loss and Grief in Social Work Practice
Workshop

This workshop addresses what social workers recognise - loss is a universal human experience. We all deal with losses of various kinds and of varying intensity throughout our lives. The emotional response to loss is grief.

We need to develop a language of grief, which emerges from our awareness of its impact on us, and helps us to see it in the context of the lives of the people with whom we work. The program will equally examine some of the ways in which the various fields of grief are acknowledged in the literature about grief practice.

23rd Jun 2016 Compassion and Presence Workshop

Responding effectively to the needs of patients and clients is an on-going professional and deeply personal challenge. Drawing on Sogyal Rinpoche’s groundbreaking book, The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, this Compassion and Presence seminar provides in-depth training in unique skills, such as contemplative listening, which will support you in your work and life. Scientific research has shown that the skills of meditation and compassion effectively enhance the care we offer. As part of professional self-care, they are also a powerful antidote to compassion fatigue, exhaustion and burnout.
