Walking the Four-Fold Way- How Ancient Archetypes Can Inform End-of-Life Care

ID: 5055

End-of-life care must go beyond the traditional medical model in order to provide a more holistic approach to the support of terminally ill patients and their families. This includes addressing the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of both the patient and their family. This interactive workshop builds on the foundational work of cultural anthropologist and author Dr. Angeles Arrien, with specific examples of how ancient archetypes and their associated human characteristics can assist hospice professionals to be present, caring and supportive of patients and families and the challenges they face at end of life. We will explore ancient archetypes found among indigenous peoples and cultures, including the warrior/leader, healer, visionary and teacher and their associated human resources and characteristics of power, love, creativity and wisdom. For each archetype and resource, we will explore relevant skills and applications to effective clinical work with terminally ill patients and families. Participants may expect the workshop to include lecture with discussion, group activities, and use of a case study.
