Press Release (ePRNews.com) - AUSTIN, Texas - May 11, 2017 - As an end of life practitioner, having experience underneath you really does matter. We all must start somewhere yes. Get a group of hospice professionals together as we share stories of our beginning days and you will hear the funniest and sweetest stories.
That’s my point: we don’t know until we have been there.
There is a big movement going on right now of people who feel called to serve the dying and we call ourselves a multitude of things: death doula, end of life doula, end of life guide or coach, soul midwife, death midwife. Some are coming from hospice ranks, developing a private practice after a long career within the field. And there are others who are wanting to serve others without coming through the hospice channels.
As I think about this and know in my bones that you don’t need a credential to serve the dying well, you DO need experience to do it well. This goes for the credentialed and non-credentialed alike.
Do what you can to gain this precious experience. Listen in as I share WHY this is so important. There are many reasons, the main one may surprise you.
