This workshop will provide a safe space to ask difficult questions. It will provide information and insights and provide an opportunity to wrestle with theology and faith, ethics and fear. Ultimately, we will be exploring how we care for others on their journey and those in their circle of support, each with different experiences of anticipatory grief complicated at times by a moral/spiritual burden.

More about Rev. Kathy Dahmer:
Rev Kathy Dahmer lives in Whitefish and works at HSN as a Registered Psychotherapist in the role of Chaplain. She works with patients and families as they navigate MAID and attends the deaths to provide care; first to patient, then to family. Kathy has extensive experience in providing supportive care in palliation from her many years of work at Hospice. In private practice Kathy specializes in Emotion Focused Therapy, which is an experiential therapy rooted in attachment science. Kathy suggests that often the questions from our heads are coming from a need within our heart, and listens deeply for the language of the heart. These experiences lived and learned contribute to her understanding pastoral care as the greatest reflection of incarnation. Kathy is passionate about mentoring and modelling pastoral care as a non-anxious presence, able to journey into the deepest of valleys unafraid.
