Making Sense of Death, Dying and Bereavement An Anthology Synopsis

This anthology offers a unique collection of personal accounts of death, dying and bereavement. It examines representations of death, dying and bereavement in fiction, poetry, the media and the Internet, as well as exploring visual representations of death and dying. Included are: - visual representations of the changing meaning of death within societies - examples of the ways in which the Web is being used to give and receive support when people are dying or when they have been bereaved - the moral, ethical and emotional issues involved in caring for people at the end-of-life - lay and professional personal accounts of miscarriage and the death of family members including children, siblings and parents; suicide and assisted suicide, the role of humour after someone dies, intimacy at the end-of-life and the impact of autopsy - reflections from survivors and people who have been bereaved following traumatic and mass death and disaster. This highly distinctive book will be key reading for professionals, students and those involved in the care of dying and bereaved people.
