Counselling in the context of organ donation and transplantation takes on varying hues and is extremely challenging. On the one hand, it involves talking to bereaved families about donating the organs of a loved one, and on the other, it is about offering succour to patients with end-stage organ disease. Healthcare professionals need to be strongly equipped in counselling techniques, breaking bad news, and grief counselling. Working in this area can take a toll, so developing strategies to deal with burnout is equally important. All of this will be dealt with in this masterclass with emphasis on ‘the healing touch’ not just for the clients, but for oneself.
  • Understanding counselling as a process
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy - Scenarios
  • Breaking Bad news and grief counselling – Insights and interactions
  • Dealing with burnout and 'compassion fatigue'


Social media and organ donation - The pervasiveness of social media has ramifications for both deceased and living organ donation. The positive aspects include improving awareness with its ability to reach out to a large number of people in a short span of time and raising funds for an expensive transplant. However, soliciting potential live donors for kidney or liver transplant on social media has both a positive and negative impact and creates ethical dilemmas. How you can engage effectively with all of these aspects across various social media platforms will be addressed.
