Become a Certified End-of-Life Doula
Our core curriculum is our signature course, “The Accompanying the Dying: A Practical Guide and Awareness Training.” In this course, we cover the essentials of what it takes to accompany another person and their family through dying and death, and afterwards. We cover all time periods and all settings of where a person may be. Deanna has integrated all her hospice RN experience since 2000, as well as her years as a private end of life doula in private practice since 2005, to create this very practical and comprehensive program for you. She has been mentoring pioneers from around the world to create innovative practices for all these years as well!
This is no ordinary online course where you may feel bored with the typical information you can learn yourself in an afternoon online. Instead, we are discussing the ‘doula way.’ This is something that takes time to become confident in and feel grounded with the parts of ‘being’ and knowing. We thoroughly teach to the end of life issues and practices you must know, as well as the art of the practice. There is also a very special component of guiding you through your own personal journey examining your own history. This is crucial to the development of the awareness you need to offer your best self to the one you are companioning.
We are right here with you every step of the way. You are not investing in a process that simply regurgitates end of life facts, medications, funeral laws, forms, etc.; you are enlisting our support to fully guide you as you gain confidence in integrating your unique gifts with your ideas of how you may want to serve others through dying and death.
The training is stellar. You will not find a more complete program anywhere. We support you to explore this material at your pace and for your own purposes. This training does include our Certificate Package, so if you would like to receive this acknowledgement, you will complete the requirements for the Course. You will receive personal feedback from Deanna on each of the 4 course assessments and your final essay.
