"Care of Self and Others After a Client Death"

Thursday, June 4, 2015

Networking: 8:00 AM to 8:30 AM
Presentation: 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM

At some point in their career, every clinician is faced with the passing of a client. Client deaths are a difficult and at times intricate event to navigate for clinicians, supervisors and agencies. This presentation will provide clinicians insights into mentally preparing themselves for this type of event, how different types of client deaths may have a different impact on the clinician and their coworkers, how supervisors can provide appropriate support and assist, and in general how individual clinicians can take care of themselves and others after the death of a client.

Learning Objectives:
After attending this session, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify the different impact(s) that a client death may have on a clinician and/or agency
  • Identify ways in which the type of client death may have additional impact(s) on a clinician and/or agency
  • List at least 3 ways that a clinician can promote self-care after a client death
  • List at least 3 ways that a supervisor and/or coworker can promote self- and other- care after a client death
