A Narrative Approach to Therapeutic Conversations at the End of Life 

Monday, October 29 - All Day Event

Presented by Sasha McAllum Pilkington - a New Zealander specializing in end-of-life conversations - whose visit to Vermont will be her first trip to the United States.

Are you meeting with people living with a serious illness, facing life-ending illness and/or loved ones grieving after someone has dies?  What guides your approach to these conversations?  Or are you interested in narrative practices and extending your skills?  Through case stories, transcript and an audio recording, Sasha McAllum Pikington will share a narrative approach to therapeutic conversations that focus on:  listening for virtue, conpanioning, making meaning and enhancing a person's sense of agency.  Please join us for a lively exchange of ideas about serving people as they approach the end of their lives, and their families/friends/communities supporting them.

The workshop is sponsored by REAUTHORING TEACHING - a global learning community of narrative therapy practitioners, educators and enthusiasts.  Having been a narrative therapist for more than 30 years, Sasha has worked since 2008 as a counsellor for Hospice North Shore in Auckland, New Zealand.  As part of Sasha's weekly practice she meets with people who are living with a life ending illness, and their families, both in the commynity and in the hospice inpatient unit.  She salso meets with family members who are grieving after someone has died.  Sasha has published some articles illustrating narrative practice with people who are dying.

The workshop will take place at TRELEVEN FARM in Vergennes, VT - an intimate space limited to 25 - on Monday, October 29th for the all day event.  For contact information refer to:
