We have lots of people to train, coach, and support in 2017 so lets get started!
In numerology this year, 2017, is a number 1 year, a year of new beginnings. A new beginning in dying, death, and grief could be signing up for Alive in Death Training for healthcare providers and family caregivers!
By the way the Saskatchewan Association of Licensed Practical Nurses has approved Alive in Death Training for their continuing education program with a value of 24 CEUs!
Events and Training
Alive in Death Online Training – www.aliveindeath.com
We have created a unique and truly helpful online training for healthcare providers and family caregivers designed to support them in both knowing death and dying more fully and in developing some great self-care practices designed to avoid burnout and increase the joy caregivers often feel.
We have also changed our tuition fee structure and now offer it by the choice of three donation amounts $75.00, $175.00 or $275.00. It is important to me that the training gets wide distribution and I do not want money to be an issue. In a way it is my gift to our professional and family caregivers who do such a great job serving our dying loved ones.
Here are some resources you can access for both yourself and for those you work with.
We have several events coming up for folks looking for training in dying, death, and grief.
