Michael, Joy, and Mary,
You all are such good collaborative learning partners. Thanks for your reflections. Simple but best practice stated resources are a good source of spiritual care, especially attending to initial loss when the loved one’s / kids are still in shock and trying to process what just happened. Resources we put in their pockets for them to take home and read later are very helpful.
In fact, our board has explored the possibility of creating a link on our website with short articles for laypersons related to many spiritual care topics.
I finally talked with Lisa and she is still in shock, trying to navigate through a very dark time. However, she did send a case study with some questions that I will get Tommy to post later today.
I hope the others who are registered will chime in soon.
