End of Life Doula Training
Janie Rakow & Jeri Glatter
International End of Life Doula Association (INELDA)
This course will be of great value to people exploring the issues of death and dying for their own personal growth or who think they want to support and guide friends and family when they face death. Graduates of our training typically go on to volunteer in a hospice or hospital, serve in their community, or work in a private doula practice.
The training will immerse you in the exciting and profound work of being an end-of-life doula. You will learn the three-phase model that serves as the foundation for the doula approach, come to understand the philosophy and spirit of service that underpins the approach, and get an intensive and thorough grounding in the powerful tools and techniques that doulas use in their work.
Regardless of the motivation behind taking this training, you will find it life-changing. It also opens the door through which you can enter into an emerging field—one that is transforming how people die in this country and around the world.
On completing the training session, you will be ready to move on to certification through the International End of Life Doula Association (INELDA) and rewarding work of service to the dying.
