HT017 – Re-membering Lives, Conversations with the Dying and Bereaved

Dr. John Winslade and Lorraine Hedtke

Speakers: LORRAINE HEDTKE MSW, ACSW, LCSW who specializes in working with people who are dying and their families and John Winslade, PhD - a Professor and Coordinator of Educational Counseling Programs at California State University San Bernardino.

Among other things, Rebecca Daniel-Burke asks the following questions:

  • How are re-membering conversations different from conventional grief counseling?
  • What are the assumptions on which re-membering conversations are built?
  • Is there an appropriate time to engage people in re-membering conversations? For example is it better 6 months or a year after a death?
  • Can you explain the idea of membership and how it relates to grief counseling?
  • Not everyone has positive memories of their dead relatives. How do you do counseling with people when they have suffered at the hands of someone in their lives?
  • Is counseling based on re-membering practices suitable for children?
  • Can this approach be used in group counseling?

Running time: 58:21
Date Recorded: 1/28/10
