Professional Wills: Following Up and Looking To the Future
by Dena Sorbo, LCSW
To those of you who attended the conference on professional wills at SFCP on Saturday, March 29, 2014, thank you.
The meeting highlighted how challenging it is to write a professional will. Writing a professional will is simple, as a practical task; the difficulty stems from the emotions that arise in all of us in the anticipation and in the actual writing. Because it is so challenging, many participants requested follow-up support for completing this task.
A question to all: How have you done with completing your professional will? Have you started it? Or completed it? Have you made arrangements with a designated colleague? Whether you have proceeded or gotten stuck, the committees would like to know what factors contributed to your progress, or what got in the way.
