The Effects of Compassionate Presence: Being with Non-Communicative Patients

Most people experience a nonverbal, coma-like state before death, yet all too often medical workers, even hospice workers and family, withdraw attentive presence when a patient enters silence. Perhaps we wonder if they know we are there. Perhaps we are uncomfortable.

In this workshop, we will discuss what work and research with the non-communicative has taught us about their needs. How can we be both fearless and sensitive in service to the dying? Together we will practice “finding” this state within ourselves and being present with another as we explore the jewels within the silence. We will also look at caregiver burnout and the essential nature of compassion.

Students will be invited to inquire directly into their own process with presence to people in trauma or altered states of consciousness, bringing questions and personal reflections forward for discussion and integration. This day will include the opportunity to experience being in a non-verbal state, and/or of being a caregiver to someone in an altered state.

Learning Objectives:
  • Students will learn about non-verbal communication and the experience and needs of non-communicative patients
  • Students will become aware of the special needs of patients dying from slow degenerative conditions (such as Alzheimer’s and dementia) and those living in skilled nursing facilities
  • Students will become aware of the dynamics of compassion
  • Students will practice the skill of compassionate presence
  • Students will gain enhanced courage in the face of another’s vulnerability and their own
  • Students will become aware of their own needs and processes in the presence of these patients
  • Students will learn how to engage curiosity and be personally fed by patient/caregiver interactions with non-communicative and institutionalized patients
