To understand and work with a dying person helps people accept and manage their own outcome or death as a natural process with all its human and spiritual implications. This is the concept that author Daniel Behar brings to this book. Behar presents his research on diverse approaches to the subject, especially those findings and concepts developed by Elizabeth Kubler Ross. Ross was one of the most important exponents of this new science called Thanatology. Thanatology promotes caring for the terminal patient and his/her family’s quality of life by addressing psychological, physical and spiritual suffering. The book is written for mature and spiritually oriented readers. The vocabulary is simple and precise.
Recommended for public libraries and bookstores, especially for those with scientific-spiritual collections
