A psychologist who specializes in life-span development and death and dying presents a life-enhancing guide designed to aid the dying in resolving the physical, emotional, and psycho-spiritual concerns of this final time of passage. Tour.

Blackwell North Amer
Dying is something we all must do. The Art of Dying shows us how to do it well. Practical and encouraging in tone, it leads us through the conflicts we all seek to resolve in our "end time" - from early physical concerns about pain and changes in appearance; to emotional concerns over relatives, reconciliation, and our own daily roller coaster of highs and lows; to psychological concerns over loss of control, loss of identity, and the need to feel that our life has had meaning; to spiritual concerns about what dying is like and what happens "next."
Author Patricia Weenolsen, Ph.D., has helped thousands of men and women struggle with these universal yet seldom-discussed issues. In The Art of Dying she shares their expertise - and hers - coaching us on what to expect and how to prepare, plan, maintain, control, rehearse, and gradually transform ourselves from a physical existence to a spiritual one. With the help of case histories, exercises, and Weenolsen's own warm yet straightforward advice, we learn to integrate the many positive gifts that death and dying bestow upon us, and that can enrich our remaining time on earth.
