Module 6: Embracing the End of Life

Returning Fall 2016. Death, Dying and Grief Certificate alternates with Spiritual Formation Certificate. The Spiritual Formation Certificate will start up again in Fall 2017.

At the end of life how do we bring closure so that we have a 'Good Death'? This module will explore various issues at the end of life including ethical decisions that need to be made, the necessity of a living will, how to say ‘good bye’, sitting ‘vigil’, learning the signs that the body is shutting down, and rituals and beliefs that make a difference. You will learn how to walk alongside both the individual who is dying and the family as they deal with death and loss.

Learning outcomes:
  • Understand ethical decisions surrounding the end of life
  • Learn how to prepare a living will
  • Discover how to bring about closure
  • Explore different rituals at the end of life
