Program Description


"Medical doctors, nurses, social workers, and the clergy have traditionally been the main players in helping care for people near death, but psychologists are increasingly using their expertise to help people have a so-called 'good death' or perhaps the more accurate 'least worst death.' End-of-life defined as the period when health care providers would not be surprised if death occurred within about six months is a time when psychologists can treat depression and anxiety associated with pending death, offer grief counseling, help people understand confusing medical terms, and help provide compassionate care for the dying and their loved ones."

The End-Of-Life Issues for Psychologists Training Program is available to educate and train not only psychologists but physicians, nurses, social workers, counselors, hospice volunteers, clergy and others who work with those near end of life.

During training, practical treatment tips are presented in audio and video presentations.

-Overview of End-Of-Life
-Psychological Distress at End-Of-Life
-Treatment of Pain at End-Of-Life
