This program provides an in-depth review of the role of End-of-Life Doulas with a plant medicine component. It includes the issues, challenges, and rewards around work with individuals and their families at the end of life. The program is designed to prepare you to work as an End-of-Life Doula and to successfully sit for the National End of Life Doula Alliance’s micro-credentialing exam and be certified NEDA Proficient.
The course consists of 8 live, virtual sessions spread out over 8 weeks with additional assignments. Each online session is 90 minutes, held on Saturdays beginning May 11 from 12-1:30pm ET/9-10:30am PT, allowing for time to discuss the previous session’s assignment and cover that day’s topic. The expected total time commitment:
Online class hours: 12 hours total
Pre-work: 1.5 hours
Homework/Individual work: 14-15 hours
Post Class Work: 2-3 hours
Total: 29.5-31.5 hours
You are expected to participate in all the classes, but we understand there may be times when there is another priority. Each session is recorded and sent to students within 24 but you must notify the instructor and work to make up any assignments.
*At the first session, students and instructor will discuss whether an alternate time is better as this is Memorial Day Weekend.
Upon successful completion of the 8-week online training participants will receive a Certificate of Completion and Digital Badge. Throughout the program, we will present a wide variety of published information as well as opportunities for learners to examine their own experiences, beliefs, hopes, and fears about death.
This is a supportive experience with opportunities to learn and grow in a subject that can be intense and life changing.
Upon written notification, a 100% refund will be given up to 4 weeks before the start of the program, 50% refund will be given between 2 and 4 weeks prior to the start of the program and no refund will be given within 13 days of the start of the program.
