The objectives of the programme:
Home Work: Participants are asked to define a loss they have experienced and explore the grief and loss cycle from their own perspective.
Home Work: How to counsel patients and caregivers in different palliative situations.
Benefits: Even if you should decide after attending the program that you don’t wish to counsel patients, you can help by conducting awareness lectures at schools, colleges and residential areas on the dangers of faulty lifestyles; by organising detection camps in high risk areas; by promoting the sale of CPAA’s Rehab Centre products. And you will take away a better understanding of your own motivations.
Certification: CPAA will give a certificate of participation for all those who complete the 3 day workshop.
Induction into CPAA:CPAA takes in a number of volunteers every year and this introductory training is a mandatory requirement. However, there is no compulsion to become a volunteer after doing the program. Those who are interested would initially work closely with experienced volunteers. Once they are satisfied that you can handle counselling on your own, we will assign an appropriate hospital.
Training Faculty: The training will be conducted by Susmita Mitra and Veena Mishra Shukla, both of whom share decades of experience in the field. Guest lecturers may be invited to cover some of the topics.
Registration: Registration fee is Rs. 1,500 and covers notes and material provided during the programme. This payment is tax exempt under section 80G (50% exemption). You will be sent a certificate of exemption along with receipt and letter of acknowledgement.
