A comparison of workshop methods of counsellor education on the topic of death and dying Flowerdew, Julie
Three workshop formats, namely, didactic, experiential, and a combined didactic and experiential, were compared with a control group to explore the possible differences in promoting effective counsellor responses to hypothetical death-related situations. Twenty-four participants responded in writing to twenty hypothetical death-related situations. Responses were rated using Atkinson's five-point scale. Results indicated a significant difference between treatment groups. The more effective workshops seem to be the didactic and the combined didactic and experiential workshop. As this was mainly an exploratory study, further research will be necessary to support the findings.
