Caring for a loved one or client suffering from a debilitating or terminal illness can be distressing. This feeling of distress often compounds when there is little hope of easing a loved one’s suffering or that his or her condition will improve. The resulting long-term emotional strain can lead caregivers to question the meaning of life and end up in spiritual distress. There can be serious implications for health and relationships if caregivers are not spiritually well. Spiritual wellness does not necessarily relate to religious activities or rituals; but instead focuses on adding meaning to the caregiver’s and care receiver’s lives.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Define and explore your personal definition of spiritual wellness;
  • Understand the importance of spirituality as a way to cope with guilt, grief and major life changes;
  • Identify steps that can be taken to avoid complicated grief and spiritual distress; and,
    Discuss living a meaningful life by focusing on your spiritual gifts.
