This seminar provides an introduction to the module by beginning with the experience of professional caregivers. Responding to the first part of a two-part video, participants are invited to identify salient examples from their own experiences with children and families, explore the impact of sharing personal feelings in those relationships, and identify the challenges inherent in remaining connected to children and families during times of acute suffering.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify relevant examples from one's professional experience that highlight meaningful engagement with children and families.
  • Explore the potential for positive and negative ramifications when health care professionals remain emotionally connected to children and families at the end of life.
  • Recognize a range of coping strategies professionals use in these situations, and the need for effective organizational support structures.
