Individuals facing death may not know how to express the range of emotions, questions, and discoveries they experience. At the same time, family members, friends, and even professional caregivers may be uncertain as to whether and how to broach the subject of death and dying. Now a unique resource, Facing Death: A Companion in Words and Images, can help open the door to meaningful conversation, reminiscence, and reflection at the end of life.In addition to aiding communication, this combination of contemplative text and evocative images will provide comfort, guidance, and even hope to readers. Concise messages offer helpful advice and thoughtful inspiration, as well as validation of common feelings. Breathtaking nature photographs add depth and meaning to the text but also stand alone as a source of comfort. Drawing upon a variety of spiritual traditions and standard psychological approaches, this book enriches the final days and weeks of life. Emotional, spiritual, and psychological needs are addressed in a way that is accessible and broadly applicable. With its extra pages for personal notes, pictures, and mementos, the book will also become a valued keepsake after a loved one's death. Developed by a former pastoral and supportive care professional,Facing Death provides a source of support and self therapy for dying individuals. The book is an invaluable resource for visiting family members and friends, and a useful tool for counselors, social workers, nurses, physicians, chaplains, and volunteers at hospices, hospitals, and nursing homes.
