Overview
In the past 13 years, I have companioned with more than 2,000 folks who have died. They, and years of research into the existential issues related to the dying process, have taught me several important lessons. Chief among them is our insatiable need to create meaning for our lives. We do this by crafting stories. This webinar will explore techniques chaplains can employ to help patients reframe meaning in light of a terminal or debilitating illness.
Learning Objectives
 
  • We will explore the need of patients to be author’s of their own life narrative to achieve a sense of spiritual peace in the midst of their disease process.
  • We will consider some practical tools for chaplains to utilize in aiding patients stuck in this life scripting project.
Please Register by Monday, April 22, 2019

Fred Grewe is a Board Certified Chaplain (Association of Professional Chaplains) with a Doctor of Ministry Degree from the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley. He is also an ordained UCC minister working for Providence Hospice in Medford.

His latest book, “Time to Talk about Dying’’ was recently published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
 
How It Works
To participate, all that is needed is a computer with Internet access and speakers, as the presentation audio and visuals are "webcast." Our webinars are priced per computer terminal, not per participant. That means you can invite as many colleagues to join you as can fit in your conference room or cluster around your computer. As a participant, you will be able to interact with the presenters, who will ask questions of the audience and answer questions posed by participants.
 
System Requirements
• As a best practice, we highly recommend an Ethernet connected computer for best connectivity and listening experience. You may experience some buffering of audio on lower bandwidth wireless connections.
• Internet Browsers:  Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 or later, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Windows Edge browser.
• Stable Internet Connection, DSL or above:  100kbps for video transmission, 300kbps for screen sharing and remote control, 500kbps to ensure fluidity of all services.
• Operating System: Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Mac OS X v10.4 or higher, Linux, Solaris.
• Adobe Flash Player 13.0 or newer: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer
• Computer Speakers
 
The link below will test your system to make sure you are running the most recent version of Adobe Flash Player and to make sure it is not being blocked by your network.
 
The "Connectivity" line should have a green check mark. If it does not please contact your network administrator to allow TelSpanWeb access to port RTMPE 1935. This will allow your Adobe Flash Player to run properly through TelSpanWeb. "Application Sharing" applies only to presenters, so if you see a red "X," that's OK.
If you have any further questions or concerns, or if you do not have computer speakers, please contact APC at info@professionalchaplains.org for assistance.

You will receive an e-mail confirmation upon completion of the online registration and payment process. Instructions for logging into the webinar will be e-mailed to all participants two business days before the event.
