End-of-Life Care, Grief and Bereavement for People with I/DD
Tue, March 24, 2020 - 9:00 am to Wed, March 25, 2020 - 5:00 pm (EST) 

This experiential two day (3/34 & 3/25) workshop will explore the supports that are needed to assist people with intellectual and developmental disabilities in understanding and participating in their end-of-life planning process. It will dispel commonly held myths about the abilities of this population in understanding their right for information when dealing with their own mortality or the loss of a loved one. The workshop will provide an overview of the forms and processes used to assist a person in planning for his/her end of life care. A comparative analysis of the plethora of religions and their practices for death and mourning will be explored. Commonalities and differences involved in the handling of this time of life will be highlighted. It will also increase clinicians’ and support professionals’ knowledge base, which is valuable when supporting others in practicing the rituals associated with his/her spiritual practice.
