The Art of Empathy - A Deeper Exploration into Self-Awareness for Improved Caregiving
Participants will be engaged in a review of Heartstrings programs and services, including The Heartstrings Method©, a model for bereavement support which has helped hundreds of local families over the past 10 years. Our NEW! Heartstrings H.O.P.E. outreach materials will also be discussed. Participants will better understand how to discuss Heartstrings’ resources with families, ensuring a smooth referral process. Parents experiencing pregnancy and infant loss have unique needs. This 1.5 hour training will also focus on the concept of empathy, providing participants an opportunity to better understand their personal disposition for empathy as a caregiver. Role-play interaction will be included to deepen awareness of how to be more actively present and compassionate with grieving patients.
