2018 Social Worker & Chaplain Skills Series 2 of 3: Ethical Challenges in Palliative Sedation & End-of-Life Decisions
Jul 26 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am

More information

Sometimes the source of someone’s suffering is that they continue to live – also called “existential suffering.” Can you recognize existential suffering? Has your team determined how to address this dynamic? Sedation (whether palliative, controlled, total, or respite) is a process that is often uncomfortable for team members to contemplate. The conflicting mandates of controlling suffering and “do no harm” may be difficult to reconcile. This webinar will delve into the challenges and dynamics existential suffering brings, including patient/family requests that present personal, professional, and ethical struggles.

2018 Social Worker & Chaplain Skills Series 3 of 3: Ethical Challenges in Personal/Professional Boundaries, Supervision, Burnout & Self-Care
Aug 7 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am

More information

Maya Angelou said, “If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” While this may sound simple enough, chaplains and social workers tend to become personally and emotionally vested in issues such as boundaries, self-care, and supervision, which often leads to burnout and/or compassion fatigue. Personal and professional commitment to producing specific outcomes can be the source of our own suffering when we perceive a lack of control. This webinar will discuss ways to address these challenges and feelings when they arise.
