Presence & Authenticity – Do These Belong to Us or Them?

Presenter:Gary Gardia
It is vitally important for chaplains, social workers, and bereavement teams to have the ability to “be present.” When we are with people who are ill and their loved ones, it is even more important to teach patients and families to be present for one another. Presence, authenticity, vulnerability, and openness will be discussed in this presentation. Pathways will be provided to help understand which part of these are for us to utilize in our work and how/when to share these critical approaches with patients and families.

Responding to Suicidal Ideation & Requests for a Hastened Death

Presenter:Gary Gardia
Is a request for a hastened death the same as suicidal ideation? This webinar will provide an in-depth look at challenges and solutions related to both requests for a hastened death and suicidal ideation. Learn if we should intervene in the same way and follow the same policy for both. We will also review common errors people make when someone says “I wish this were all over.” or “When my husband dies, I want to go with him.”
Tackling Social Isolation & Loneliness –  Solutions & Interventions
On-DemandWebinar

Tackling Social Isolation & Loneliness – Solutions & Interventions

Presenter:Gary Gardia
While social isolation has become the normal for many people, it can be particularly difficult for those who are ill as well as their caregivers. Social isolation pre COVID-19 was a key criteria for medium- to high-risk bereavement risk assessments. What that means now is that most, if not all, families are at medium to high risk at time of admission. In this webinar we will discuss common challenges associated with isolation, including higher than normal levels of anxiety and distress, and we will also explore a wide range of interdisciplinary solutions and interventions.
