Speaking of Dying: A Practical Guide to Using Counselling Skills in Palliative Care

by Louis Heyse-Moore
£17.99   paperback  Jessica Kingsley Publishers (2008)

Speaking of Dying: A Practical Guide to Using Counselling Skills in Palliative Care by Louis Heyse-Moore Good counselling skills are often not taught to the professionals who need them most. Compassionate and tactful communication skills can make the difference between an awkward encounter with a dying patient, and an engaging, empathic bond between two people.
 
Louis Heyse-Moore draws on his wealth of experience as a trained counsellor and palliative medicine specialist. Covering difficult subjects such as breaking the news of terminal illness to a patient, euthanasia and the effect of working with patients on carers, Speaking of Dying is a practical guide to using counselling skills for all clinical disciplines working in palliative care, whether in a hospice, hospital or at home.
 
Complete with a clear explanation of both counselling and medical terminology, this hands-on guide will be an invaluable companion to anyone working in palliative care.
