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 and reconciliation; to psychological concerns over loss of control and loss of identity; to spiritual concerns and the need to feel that our life has had meaning. Author Patricia Weenolsen, Ph.D., has helped thousands of men and women struggle with these universal yet seldom-discussed issues. 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.
