Certificate in Thanatology
Online Thanatology Certificate Program
Special Topics in Thanatology: Dying, Death and Bereavement
End-of-Life issues impact the practice of all healthcare professionals, counselors, clergy, hospice staff, social workers and many others. In order to provide appropriate, compassionate care, one must have a sound understanding of all aspects of grief – from anticipatory grief to post death grief. Special Topics in Thanatology: Dying, Death and Bereavement is a three
part distance learning program incorporating both video lectures and on-line components provided on a password protected website. The program divisions are:
Section I: The Grief Primer
Section II: Issues and Interventions Related to Complicated and Disenfranchised Grief
Section III: The Capstone Experience
Sections I and II contain from five to seven topic areas with multiple modules addressing each area. The Capstone Experience video contains an overview of the experiential component of the program.
This division of content allows the learner freedom to select information directly related to his/her needs. The presenters are highly qualified professionals who integrate content and research with real world experience.
Each of the two content sections of the program can be purchased separately and CE credit will be awarded upon successful completion of the online quizzes and evaluation form. While it is recommended that the Grief Primer be completed first as it provides foundational information, the choice is left to the learner. In order to earn a certificate of completion for the series, the learner must successfully complete all three sections of the program. The Capstone Experience is available only to those who have successfully completed the two content sections of the program.
