Date & Time
1:30 pm - 4:30 pm
This workshop explores paranormal phenomena associated with dying and grief. The presentation considers a variety of phenomena—including terminal lucidity, near-death experiences, nearing-death experiences, premonitions of death, transpersonal end-of-life experiences, and extraordinary experiences. While respectful of such occurrences, we discuss counseling implications and connections to current theory. At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to describe phenomena around death and dying, consider the ways in which particular phenomena may influence grief and loss, and discuss ways that counselors can deal with such phenomena.
