Psychology of Death and Dying

Sooner or later each one of us faces death, our own or others we care about. And yet, few take time beforehand to think about these endings, and in the process may lose the wisdom of the ages that comes after facing death. Perhaps this explains why when Plato was asked to summarize his philosophy he reportedly said: Practice dying. He understood that dying is what each one of us does throughout our lives, whether it is leaving home the first time to go to school or departing from this planet when our lives end. If we learn how to die--to let go and get our egos out of the way--we will have gained wisdom about how best to live. This brief yet comprehensive book deals not only with the philosophical and psychological meaning of death but its practical implications for our lives. Written by two brothers who have taught philosophy, ethics, psychology, and religion at community colleges and four-year private colleges, this book can be used in many learning situations, whether part of courses in philosophy, ethics, psychology, or counseling; or for short-term workshops or continuing education courses for students in human services, health care, social work, or any of the helping professions.

Living in Death   s Shadow

What is it like to live with—and love—someone whose death, while delayed, is nevertheless foretold? In Living in Death’s Shadow, Emily K. Abel, an expert on the history of death and dying, examines memoirs written between 1965 and 2014 by family members of people who died from chronic disease. In earlier eras, death generally occurred quickly from acute illnesses, but as chronic disease became the major cause of mortality, many people continued to live with terminal diagnoses for months and even years. Illuminating the excruciatingly painful experience of coping with a family member’s extended fatal illness, Abel analyzes the political, personal, cultural, and medical dimensions of these struggles. The book focuses on three significant developments that transformed the experiences of those dying and their intimates: the passage of Medicare and Medicaid, the growing use of high-tech treatments at the end of life, and the rise of a movement to humanize the care of dying people. It questions the exalted value placed on acceptance of mortality as well as the notion that it is always better to die at home than in an institution. Ultimately, Living in Death’s Shadow emphasizes the need to shift attention from the drama of death to the entire course of a serious chronic disease. The chapters follow a common narrative of life-threatening disease: learning the diagnosis; deciding whether to enroll in a clinical trial; acknowledging or struggling against the limits of medicine; receiving care at home and in a hospital or nursing home; and obtaining palliative and hospice care. Living in Death’s Shadow is essential reading for everyone seeking to understand what it means to live with someone suffering from a chronic, fatal condition, including cancer, AIDS, Alzheimer’s, and heart disease.

Children Adolescents and Death

Children  Adolescents  and Death

The topic of death and related issues (such as grief) often begin with questions. When the questions come from, or are about, children or adolescents, they bring an additional component...the fear some adults have of giving a “wrong” answer. In this context a wrong answer is one that can cause more harm than good for the child or adolescent who asked the question. This book provides information that can be used to address the death-related questions from children and adolescents. It also looks at questions from caring adults about the way children or adolescents view death and the grief that follows a death or any major loss. Children, Adolescents, and Death covers topics that start with early studies of childhood grief and progress to expression of grief in cyberspace. There is no one answer to most of the questions in this book. There are contributors from a number of continents, countries, cultures, and academic disciplines, each of whom brings a unique view of the topic issues they discuss. There are presentations of practical interventions that others may copy, upon which they can build. There are a number of chapters that look at death education in both family and school settings. This work contains ideas and techniques that can be of value to parents, educators, counselors, therapists, spiritual advisors, caring adults and, of course, will be of the most benefit to those who ask the most questions...the children and adolescents themselves.

101 Questions and Answers on the Four Last Things

Joseph Kelley has written a short, accessible, thorough introduction to, and overview of, Christian teaching on death, judgment, hell and heaven, called in theology the four last things. Presented in the popular 101 Questions format, this book shows how these four topics, also referred to as Christian eschatology, have their ancient roots in the sacred books of the Hebrew Scriptures, especially in the later writings known as apocalyptic literature. The New Testament receives and builds upon Jewish thought and piety, finding in Jesus Christ a new revelation about the meaning of death, the nature of judgment, and God's desire that all be saved and united through Christ in heaven. Kelley clearly presents the major theological ideas about the four last things that have emerged in Christian history, as well as the sacramental and pastoral practices surrounding death. Questions range from the simple What makes a cemetery Catholic? to Does the Church believe in reincarnation? to What do other religions say about judgment? and What does it mean to say that Jesus sits at God's right hand in heaven? This one-step guide to Catholic teaching on death, judgment, heaven, and hell is a one-of-a-kind book and will make informative, fascinating reading for high school, college, and graduate courses in theology, religion, psychology, social work, counseling, and ministry, especially death and dying courses. Also, adult education and parish study groups on death and dying as well as Christian support groups for bereavement.

Abnormal behaviors can re veal to us, and even allow us to localize, brain dysfunction and disease. And they can cause, for patients, their families, and friends, considerable suffer ing. On an intellectual level, trying to comprehend the behavior of our patients (and our own behavior as well), contributes to making medicine a truly intriguing profession.
