Karma, Ethics and Palliative Care

Format Workshop
Presenters Dr Jacqui Dodds, MAASW
Description The Buddhist understanding of karma, intentionality and co-dependent arising frame, the exploration of personal and professional ethics in counselling, particularly in palliative care are dealt with in this unit. Insight into the deeper issues of human suffering and release there from are considered.
About the presenter(s) Dr Jacqui Dodds has a solid background in Buddhist teachings, Psychotherapy, Meditation, Palliative Care and Work with Cancer Patients, as well as counselling both privately and within a Western Australian Community Mental Health team. She has been a committed meditation practitioner for 27 years and a psychotherapist, researcher and social worker for 17 years.

Her doctoral research explored how the meanings people made of cancer affected their experience of suffering and well being, and demonstrated how these meanings were influenced by mainstream biomedical and alternative holistic healing and natural healing assumptions about cancer, in particular, and illness in general.
