Hospice care involves more than just the patient’s medical condition.  It includes their emotional, social, and spiritual health as well.  Join us as we expand on the role of social workers and chaplains as counselors.  This webinar will employ the counseling techniques and interventions covered in previous webinars and apply them to case examples.  It will focus on working through common and potentially challenging situations utilizing counseling techniques from theoretical frameworks such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Mindfulness Awareness, and the Dual Process Model.  If you missed the earlier webinars, a summary of the counseling techniques will be included in the handout.
