Fear often prevents us from engaging in meaningful interaction with the dying and grieving. In Growth through Loss and Change, Volume I & II, author and registered nurse Clarice Schultz explains what can be done for the dying and grieving-including how to embrace loss, how to accept it, and how to grieve.
A collection of unedited versions of lectures developed and presented during thirty years of teaching, Growth through Loss and Change, Volume I & II places emphasis on identifying the dynamics of loss and discovering practical means of support in personal and institutional settings. It also provides a host of intervention methods which are related to the cultural and emotional aspects of dying, grieving, sudden death, grieving children, and caregiving.
Designed as a learning course, Growth through Loss and Change, Volume I & II, enables participants to develop a therapeutic presence they can offer to themselves and others coping with a loss in family, community, and institutions. This guide will help students find a safe place to search for their life's history of loss and come to terms with their own personal death awareness in order to help others.
