Just as the Earth is forever changed by the death of a life-giving tree, so, too, is the spiritual landscape of the caregiver altered following the loss of a loved one or client. In fact, the agony associated with loss can disrupt the caregiver’s spiritual well-being and increase the likelihood that some will experience spiritual distress in their grief. This web seminar will focus on the intense grief many caregivers experience with the loss of a loved one or client.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Describe effective practices for broaching the topic of spiritual distress and its relationship to complicated grief among frontline caregivers;
  • Describe how compassion fatigue and burnout can be detrimental to the spiritual well-being of grieving caregivers; and,
  • List strategies that spiritual caregivers (pastors, priests, clergy, etc.), employers, family members and friends can use to support grieving caregivers.
