End-of-Life Doulas often find themselves navigating difficult conversations with the dying and their loved ones. Ellie will facilitate a session focused on:

  • Techniques and attitudes that help build trust with clients
  • How to honor each person’s perspective when various family members are not on the same page regarding end-of-life decisions
  • How to advocate for the dying person’s expressed wishes, while respectfully walking the tightrope of loved ones’ denial, heightened emotions, and conflicts.
  • Questions the dying commonly have about death and dying and how to know when they are ready to have that conversation.
  • And more! Bring your questions.

Ellie is the author of Stepping Stones: Following a Pathway to the End of Life, now on our required certification reading list for end-of-life doulas.
