On Death and Dying: What the Dying Have to Teach Doctors, Nurses, Clergy and Their Own Families
Ten years after Elisabeth Kübler-Ross's death, a commemorative edition with a new introduction and updated resources section of her beloved, groundbreaking classic on the five stages of grief.
One of the most important psychological studies of the late twentieth century, On Death and Dying grew out of Dr. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross's famous interdisciplinary seminar on death, life, and transition. In this remarkable book, Dr. Kübler-Ross first explored the now-famous five stages of death: denial and isolation, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Through sample interviews and conversations, she gives readers a better understanding of how imminent death affects the patient, the professionals who serve that patient, and the patient's family, bringing hope to all who are involved.
Why We Love This Gift: This is the seminal book on death and dying. A pioneer in the field, Kübler-Ross set a standard in end-of-life discussions and in doing so, she changed the very paradigm of talking about death. A stunning achievement by any measure. An obvious and unanimous top-pick of the editorial team at Give InKind. We love this book because it offers comfort at a critical moment. And that is priceless, indeed.
What To Express In Your Note: I am a bit at a loss for words right now. The profundity of death is hard to address. This book has been around for a long time and many people have benefited from reading it. It may or may not resonate with you - experiences are so unique. Still, I'd love to meet for coffee to talk. I'm sending you so much love.
