Dr. Robert will present on the topics of dying and grieving, the professional roles assumed by psychologists caring for persons at end-of-life and bereaved, and related skill sets for the provision of clinical psychology services. Dr. Robert’s professional experience is most applicable to young patients (early childhood through young adulthood) who are dying from a terminal illness (expected deaths) and actively managed by a medical team(s), including a palliative care medical team.
Clinical psychology skills for supporting, guiding, and intervening with these patients and family members will be discussed. Particular attention will be given to psychotherapy skills and practical interventions relevant to working with persons at end-of-life and the bereaved.
- Increase awareness of the available professional care standards for working with persons at end-of-life and the bereaved
- Review evidence-based information regarding the needs of children and families, from the perspective of bereaved parents
- Learn developmentally fitting interventions to help children and families when the child is dying
- Develop psychotherapy skills that are commonly applicable to persons at end-of-life and the bereaved
- Particular attention will be given to Cognitive Behavioral Theory and third wave interventions (Dialectical and Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy techniques)
