Practical Strategies for Your Work with Grieving Families: Using philosophy and literature

Practical Strategies for Your Work with Grieving Families: Using philosophy and literature

Presented by Dr Di Stow

The NSW Branch of PACFA would like to invite you to it’s next Professional Development event.

To read Yalom’s When Neitzche Wept is to participate in a compelling story — through the event of a novel, not a text on counselling techniques, we engage in an atmosphere of drama, suspense and fear, when a psychoanalyst becomes the healer of a philosopher who is in the depth of despair and on the brink of suicide. In the novel form we become fascinated with the art of counselling and reason and expressing emotion.

According to Yalom, the most valuable thing that a counsellor can offer is her or his self. Exploring self and coming to self-understanding helps us to become aware of our “blind spots and dark sides” and develop empathy for the trials of others for their grief and for their joy. Knowing and honouring self can assist counsellors to experience a client’s process from the client’s seat.
