TLC Online - Deep Listening and Gentle Touch
Time & Location
About the Event
TLC workshops give ANYONE and EVERYONE practical skills, invaluable information, confidence and support when it comes to looking after someone who is dying 🦋 You may work in health care, be caring for a loved one or feel drawn to this kind of work, whatever your motivation and experience, you are very welcome 🥰
Due to the current climate, TLC training days have been broken down into 3 online modules :
-Deep Listening and Gentle Touch
-The 4 Stages of Dying
-How to hold a Loving Bedside Vigil
This session is Deep Listening and Gentle Touch. In this 90 minute module we will talk about what skills we need to truly listen and 'hear' someone, on many different levels. We will discuss the importance of connection at end of life and how we can truly 'be present' for those we are supporting. In this module we will look at practical ways we can offer comfort and support in the form of gentle, soothing touch. This is a therapeutic technique that can be offered to ease fear and anxieties and in turn help to create a sense of calm and peace for the dying.
There will be an opportunity to share if you wish, ask questions to myself and each other and engage in a confidential, safe and loving space.
All you will need is access to Zoom, a quiet space with no distractions and an open heart. We will start the session with some deep breathing to open the space, there will be tea breaks and then a short debrief at the end to close the session. All handouts will be emailed after the training along with a certificate of attendance.

In 2017 The National Council for Palliative Care praised our TLC Compassionate Community Project for the “quality of the love it gave to the dying”.
In 2019 it was implemented by Dorset NHS, where it is being offered to all End of Life patients within the county’s community hospitals.
In 2020 TLC training received funding from regional Public Health and local Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) to support Nursing homes amidst the Corona Virus Pandemic
