NAVIGATING DIFFICULT CONVERSATIONS With author ELLIE ATHERTON 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.
I met with the Londonderry Leach Library Book Group to discuss my book, Stepping-Stones. This is an amazing group of women. I thank one and all for your openness, honesty, and ability to share your feelings about my book and your personal stories with me.
