Conveying bad news Panel:
This one is for healers and diviners, and spiritual helpers. How do you tell someone that their condition is not going to get better? That the one the client loves is not going to leave spouse and family for them? How do you help people understand that they need to take responsibility for their own problems, without sounding like you’re blaming the victim, but really, they are the only one who can help themselves? How can you tell someone something they need to hear, when they don’t want to hear it…? We’re in this because we want to help, but even when it breaks our hearts, sometimes we can’t bridge the gap. Many of us find it unacceptable to lie, but the truth isn’t something they want to see, or maybe something we want to tell. Panelists will share their experiences and best advice for this hard challenge.
