GSS Continuing Education: Understanding Your Own Death Anxiety for the Death-Adjacent Clinician

Thursday, October 14
12 – 2 p.m.

Death anxiety is an evolutionary concept relating to the very core of what it means to be human. While death anxiety is often implicit and below conscious awareness, some theorists and researchers propose it actually underlies much of our motivation in life. A better understanding of the death anxiety implicit within us helps us better tolerate and hold space for the often-unspoken death anxiety of our patients and clients. This workshop seeks to help participants better understand what death anxiety is, how it manifests, and how it feels within themselves. The workshop is highly experiential and evocative and requires focused, active participation and reflection.


This event is open to alumni and the public.
