By shedding light upon our own responses in the face of serious illness, dying, and death, we can bring them out of the darkness, understand them, and seek alternative ways to accept them, own them, cope with and, occasionally, change them.
It is with such a goal that this book is written. It aims to explore the experiences of care providers who care for seriously ill, dying or bereaved children, adolescents or adults, and to offer a framework within which their responses can be addressed, understood and transformed.
The book focuses on three main themes:
The "Caring Relationship" which adopts an interpersonal perspective by focusing on the relationship between the care provider and the dying or grieving person
The "Care Provider" and the adoption of an intrapsychic approach, which addresses personal responses to death
"The Team" which adopts a systemic perspective, focusing on the organizational context within which care services are offered

About the Author:

Her work is known internationally through her publications, presentations at scientific meetings, and active involvement in international work groups and societies. She has organized several conferences and symposia and along with her father Costas Papadatos organized in 1989, the 1st International Conference on Children and Death and subsequently edited the book "Children and Death" (1991). She has received an award from Children's Hospice International (1989), and the 'Death Educator Award' by the Association for Death Education and Counseling (2001).
