A Lion in the House DVD Modules for Health Care Education

Primary Author: A Lion in the House, Community Media Productions, Inc.

A compelling set of teaching modules is available from the Emmy Award-winning documentary about children with cancer, A LION IN THE HOUSE. Based on real-life case studies, where things do not always go so well, the stories offer a forum to consider and discuss approaches to helping families navigate life and death issues related to cancer.

The Case Studies in Spirituality and Childhood Cancer Module offers specific, complicated case studies around issues of spirituality during a pediatric medical crisis. The Institute of Medicine defines pediatric palliative care to include the spiritual needs of a family, with a broad view of spirituality as the search for meaning and purpose in life and in death. Many families rely on spiritual resources in times of health-related crises, especially at end-of-life. Yet the majority of medical caregivers do not address issues of spirituality with their patients, with many feeling ill-equipped to do so. This module offers the insight of several veteran pediatric oncologists around spirituality issues.

-Each DVD module contains mini movies shot over a course of six years, competencies & objectives, discussion questions, a recommended resource list, and a PowerPoint presentation.

Art of Ascension

Primary Author: Eileen Dunn, warmy eileen

Every death is unique. While the emotional and spiritual needs of the families undergoing this process are undoubtedly complex, the language of energy helps to bring a universal understanding to the sacred process of dying. Guided by a map of the chakras, you will learn to recognize the physical stages of a spiritual transition, establishing the connection between the family and the dying individual. Through the complementary tools of massage, aromatherapy, music, and visualization, you create a sacred space for the dying.

Through self-reflection, the reader begins to explore his or her own inner world and beliefs. As healers, we are truly sacred messengers, journeying with our patients between the earthly and spiritual realms.
