Coaching at End of Life: A Coach Approach to Ministering to the Dying and the Grieving

3d-caeol-faceleft1

 

 

We live in a culture that is uneasy with end of life issues. Yet death is the one reality we must all face. All will die, and most will experience grief.

 

This training, divided into 3 initial modules (with additional modules that can be added on) will focus on the spiritual leader who wants to use a coach approach to minister to the dying and the grieving.  Participants will take away practical skills and behaviors that will equip them to effectively minister as an end of life coach, both to individuals and to groups.  In addition to the 8 Building Blocks of coaching, class members will learn 8 Supporting Building Blocks for coaching the dying, and 8 Supporting Building Blocks for coaching the grieving.  Practical tools for follow up will be introduced.  Those participating will be given the opportunity to examine their own views on death, dying and grieving, and will practice end of life coaching.

Participants will use the textbook, “Coaching at End of Life.”
