Integrating the "Work of Aging" into Your Life and Practice

 

 

Presenter: Kelly Klund, LPN

1:00 PM - 4:00 PM


3 CEUs (may be counted as clinical CEUs)

 

 

 

How intentionally do we account for the realities that come with aging – for ourselves and those we serve? 

 

“Work of Aging” (WOA) describes conversations or actions that support one in reaching wisdom in matters of living and dying, beginning when people start to confront their own mortality. WOA is a verb, requiring action and focusing on the exploration of 7 core questions:

 

• How does my life have meaning?

• How do I want to live the rest of my life?

• What matters most to me? 

• How long will I live? 

• What happens when I die?

• Will my loved ones be okay when I am gone? 

• What will people think when they hear my name? 

 

This work begins when people start to reflect on their life and confront their own mortality. Once a person has explored their Work of Aging, people have the opportunity for peace, hope and/or acceptance. This experiential webinar will cover WOA’s seven domains, explore the role of each domain in your own life, and help us integrate them purposefully in our practice and our own lives.
