Program Description: We WANT to be present with others when they are hurting.
We WANT to know what to say or do to help. We’ve simply forgotten that we already know how. This program explores why it
is so challenging to be with others’ pain, what to say, what not to say, and how to care well for ourselves in the process.
Program Learning Outcome:
Participants will actively engage in the activity and indicate an intent to change or enhance their practice by analyzing and
applying appropriate boundaries when caring for those suffering in order to provide presence and healing for the patient and
family while also caring for themselves as caregivers.
