Henry Fersko-Weiss, LCSW
Doulas have long helped women through labor, and now a new kind of doula is helping people through their final passage. This intensive training is for nurses, social workers, body therapists, birth doulas, and anyone interested in understanding the end-of-life process and working skillfully with dying people and their loved ones. Henry Fersko-Weiss, who created the End-of-Life Doula program, will teach you how to use guided visualization, massage, ritual, touch, the gift of presence, and end-of-life planning to support people physically, emotionally, and spiritually in their final journey. We will cover what happens to the body and spirit during this final transition, and what happens for loved ones after a death. Learn to bring peace and transformation to dying people, and comfort and a sense of completion to caregivers.
