Death, Dying and Bereavement

by Donna Dickenson et al (editors) - £29.99  Sage Publications (2000)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780761968573 | ISBN 10: 0761968571

By drawing together information, reflection and experience, this authoritative text will broaden understanding of a subject area that western society is accused of denying. This collection combines academic research with professional and personal reflections in addressing both the practical and the metaphysical aspects of death. While reviewing such topics as methods of pain relief, guidelines for breaking bad news, attitudes to euthansia and do-not-resuscitate orders, the mystery of death and its wider implications are also explored. There are wide-ranging contributions from those who come into professional contact with death and bereavement - doctors, nurses, social workers and counsellors, plus more intimate personal accounts from carers and bereaved people. Essential reading for anyone working in nursing, medicine, social work, as well as funeral directors, clergy, counsellors and others involved in the care of dying and bereaved people.
