Description

Description:

Working with terminally ill patients and their families is necessarily time-limited. The effects of such work can be dramatic and lasting for both patient and survivors. This magnifies the effects of such therapy and thus underscores the importance of intervening elegantly and boldly, moving through patients' (and therapists') fear of death.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To name three of the most common sources of resistance that both therapist and clients have regarding courageously discussing mortality issues.
  2. To describe four brief interventions that assist dying patients in their emotional adjustment and "dying well."
