Product Description

Fear keeps us from talking to the people we love as they near the end of their lives. Fear of saying the wrong thing. Fear of upsetting someone. Fear of our own feelings. Fear of the unknown. Most of us have had a lifetime of stunted communication, of practicing how not to connect, or talk intimately and honestly with someone we love. How can we overcome our patterns of poor communication at a time when we are least able to think straight, that is, when a loved one is dying? In this book you will learn how to manage your fears and communicate both verbally and nonverbally with the dying using specfic prescriptive dialogues and directions that provide practical ways into these diffcult conversations.

Publisher's Description

Plenty of books explore the emotions of coping with grief and a loved one's death. But as psychologist Carol Wogrin has observed, there is little advice for those at a loss for words witnessing the process of dying. ""Matters of Life and Death discusses the importance of communicating with the terminally ill both through talking and nonverbal expression and offers suggestions for what to say to offer comfort, both emotional and physical.
Brimming with constructive advice for opening up, ""Matters of Life and Death helps allay the fears that often silence friends and relatives in the face of death. Helping readers manage their fears-the fear of saying the wrong thing, of upsetting others, of facing overwhelming feelings-this book is a beautiful prescription for conveying a heartfelt message when it matters the most.
