THE DEATH AND RESURRECTION DOULA Become Certified
Death Doula Training Certification
Death Doulas are quickly becoming end-of-life ambassadors and are a cutting-edge way to deal with death. A Death Positive movement aims at taking death back, or bringing it home, so to speak. After a century of outsourcing death care to hospitals and funeral homes, individuals are revisiting the idea of dying at home, and families are finding themselves in a new role of becoming caregivers to the dying.
The Death and Resurrection Doula training program is built upon a lifetime of experience. At the heart of this program lies service and hope. Laurel Marr has specifically crafted this program from an eschatological perspective of the Christian expectation of Christ's return and the resurrection of the dead. This Death Doula training program offers Christian theology as a fundamental component in training communities in caring for the dying to meet the growing need for a solution to the current crisis surrounding us in the way we think about and handle death.
The Death and Resurrection Doula curriculum is contained in two parts and is taught by Laurel Marr along with pastors, a chaplain, and a Hospice worker. The first module prepares Death Doulas with the necessary theological foundation of the Christian faith. Why do we die? We must look to Genesis to know this answer. Our personal stories hold the story of Jesus Christ who has come to save us from sin, death, and the Devil. Doulas are trained to see their stories through a lens of "justification by faith through grace" in order to listen to the stories of others who they will be serving. Theological topics such as the significance of baptism and funerals are also covered. The second module consists of the necessary training for the professional vocation of non-medical support to individuals, families, and communities in the face of death.
